good morning,

here's what I'd do -- the original variable is -occ-

   gen lastdigit=occ-int(occ/10)*10

that should work--

Dear listers:
I have a variable (occupational code) that takes values 1 to 10000 but
always finishes in 1, 2, 3 or 4 (qualification level). I need to create a
new variable with this last numbers (qualification level) so my new variable
takes values 1 2 3 and 4 (the original variable has no puncts or commas
separating the figures).
Is there a way to do it?
Thank you very much
