Thanks again Kit.  I erred in not declaring in my original question that I
was using Stata 9.2 

Your insight into how to accomplish this was most useful.

Thanks.

Well, the plot thickens...turns out my exhortation to use Jann's  
routine is not necessary in Stata 10, in which there is indeed a  
function invtokens(). It did not exist in Stata 9.2, which is why Ben  
Jann wrote one. So correct, pre-Stata 10, use Jann's mm_invtokens();  
in Stata 10, invtokens() will work.
