Well, no. As documented in the help for -egenmore- -- 
which as pointed out by Carole Wilson, David Radwin, 
and Kit Baum himself is a user-written package -- 
-egen, record()- computes a series of records
(the maxima, or if desired, the minima) experienced
so far. Usually, but invariably, the context is one 
or more time series and so we see a series of records 
over time. 

If you want just the minima and maxima, go there 
directly with -egen-'s -min()- and -max()-, which 
are part of official Stata. Alternatively, use -summarize-.
