Why have I never noticed this before? Stata 9, updated.


. d com1-com45

              storage  display     value
variable name   type   format      label      variable label

medcom6         byte   %9.0g                  meds: HIV
com6            byte   %8.0g                  HIV
medcom7         byte   %9.0g                  meds: HTN

And I discovered it when

. egen total=rtotal(com1-com45)

totalled all the -medcom- variables as well. How can I reference
just those variables that start with -com-?


thanks,
Jeph
