Thank you Michael!

see help inlist()

It only works with up to 10 strings (which your example exactly meets)

Dear Statalist members,
I have a dataset which contains a variable <site_02> containing a long list of tumor ID codes, from which I want to keep ten:
C180 through C189.

Is there a less labor-intensive way to do the following:

keep if site_02=="C180" | site_02=="C181" | site_02=="C182" | ///
site_02=="C183" | site_02=="C184" | site_02=="C185" | ///
site_02=="C186" | site_02=="C187" | site_02=="C188" | site_02=="C189"
