Dear Statalisters,

Firstly, I would like to thank to Maarten due to his helpful suggestions
on my last question. Thx a lot, Maarten.


Well, I am using -postfile- to compute some summary statistics from a
number of variables present in my dataset. However, I do not want to
create a new .dta archive, since -postfile- will output the same number of
observations that I have in the current dataset. So, my question is
whether there is a way to do that task without creating a new .dta file.
It stands to logic that I could do that using matrix functions, but this
would be limited to 11,000 observations and, in comparison to -postfile-,
is a little bit more time-consuming.

Thank you in advance for any suggestion.

Sincerely yours,

Tiago
