Hello all,
I am having trouble figuring out how to create a new variable
based on the row numbers of my data. I just want to create a
sequentially numbered variable (x, x+1, x+2 ect...) to
uniquely identify each row of my data.

There is probably a real quick and simple solution to this, I
just haven't yet found it. Can anyone point me in the right
direction?

Thanks

Eleanor Friedman
