Hi all,

I have a file with one variable and 5000 observations. Is there a way to
create say 10 different files with 500 observations in each and serially
number them . i.e the first file would contain obs 1/500, the next file
would contain 501/1000 observations and so on. 

One option I had in mind was use savesome (a user written ado) 

For example

savesome var in 1/500 using file1.dta

but I am not sure how to automate the process..

Thanks
Rajesh
