Dear statalist,
I want to convert a string variables(type: T0274K0VH550101) in numeric. I try to use the commands destring and encode, but with the first I din't have any result, while with the second I have this error:
encode codind, gen(id)
too many values
r(134);
with destring I have
destring codind, generate(id) force
codind contains non-numeric characters; id generated as byte
(128147 missing values generated)

exist another solution?
thanks in advance for your help.
