Dear Statalisters,

I have a problem with the lag operator:
tsset id time
sort id time
replace X = l.X if X == . & l.X != . 
produces the following error:
not sorted

What is the problem with this code? Does *tsset* not ensure that we do not 
have to sort and use by... again?

Thanks for your help,
