I think your question is: how do you drop the observations of Y where X is missing? In that case, the answer is: drop if missing(X) This will keep the 50 observations of X, plus the 50 observations of Y where X is not missing. hth, Jeph tiago.pereira@incor.usp.br wrote:

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.
