Hi,



I have a dataset with kids BMIs that looks like this:



MRN     VisitDate   BMI

123     10/20/04    30

123      6/11/05    25

123      4/14/06    25

222

222

222



Where MRN is the unique identifier. Kids had different visits at
different times and BMI were take at each time. How can I generate
a variable that codes for Visit 1,2,3,etc? So that I can measure
the change between baseline and last follow-up?

Thank you,
