Re: st: Inserting a row in the data table |

Hello Sebastian, Thanks for your suggestion. However, -gsort- may not be helpful. For example, if there is no missing data and still I want to insert a row in 1, gsort will fail. I think -expand- will only work for duplicate options. By using [_n] function, the problem can be solved, but that might not be effective utilization of time given that I have to repeat for a large number of variables. Thanks Regards Kartick >>> "Sebastian F. Büchte" <sfbuechte@gmail.com> 09/20/07 11:21 PM >>> Kartick looking at your example it seems more to be a sort problem. Try gsort ABC, mfirst This will sort your data by entries in ABC in ascending order with missing values first. If you would like to add observations to a dataset, you could use -expand-. This command allows you to add extra observations by copying existing ones, e.g., expand 2 in 1 will append a full copy of your dataset's first observation and append it to the very end of the dataset. Find out more about -expand- with -help expand-. Sebastian 2007/9/20, Kartick Gupta <kartick@mngt.waikato.ac.nz>: > Hello all, > Is it possible to insert a row in the data table?
