You can't. More importantly, why would you want to do that? Most (all?) commands will drop missing values anyway when producing results.

Dear statalisters,

I have a simple question:

Supose I have two variables, X and Y with 50 and 75 observations,
respectively. How do I delete the first 25 observations of the variable Y
without losing the first 25 observations of the X variable?

Although simple, I have not been able to find out a solution.

Thank you again.

Best regards,

Tiago
