Hi Tiago, I'm fairly sure you cannot store a non-numeric value in a matrix (as opposed to a list in R that accepts strings). However, you could store your file names as row names in the matrix. Inside your loop, add: local rownames1 = "`rownames1' `u'_replication_number_`i'.dta" Then outside your loop, add: matrix rownames M = `rownames1' Note that a space precedes the first rowname. I'm not sure if that matters, but you could use the following the first time through your loop. local rownames1 = "`u'_replication_number_`i'.dta" Best, Brent Fulton -----Original Message----- From: owner-statalist@hsphsun2.harvard.edu [mailto:owner-statalist@hsphsun2.harvard.edu] On Behalf Of tiago.pereira@incor.usp.br Sent: Sunday, September 02, 2007 3:19 PM To: statalist@hsphsun2.harvard.edu Subject: st: Matrix command - vecdiag? Dear Statalisters, I have the following do file (and a lot of .dta files): clear set obs 100 tempname M forvalues i = 1/100 { forvalues u = 1(0.1)1.6 { use "C:\TEST\RR=`u'_replication_number_`i'.dta" set more off quietly summarize A matrix `M' = nullmat(`M') \ ( r(mean), r(N)) clear } } svmat double `M' , name(results) -svmat- saves results as: results1 results2 1.2 56 1.3 85 Nonetheless, I would like to add to the matrix a third collumm, which will have the name of the .dta file. For example, results1 results2 results3 1.2 56 RR=1.2_replication_number_1.dta 1.3 85 RR=1.2_replication_number_2.dta . . . Is this difficult to do without changing much my simple do file? I have tried the vecdiag option, unsuccessfully, however. I will be very grateful for any help again.
