I take the liberty of assuming that a, b, c, d etc in the variable "inventory" does not mean anything in particular (That is they are not codes for number of inventories) In that case I think the following set of commands will do sort year firm generate inv=1 egen inventory_count=total(inv), by( year firm) duplicates drop firm year, force drop inventory reshape wide inventory_count, i(firm) j(year) Krishanu On Feb 12, 2008 7:34 PM, Dascha Orlova <dascha.or@gmx.de> wrote: > Dear Statalisters, > > my question is fairy basic but I fail to find a solution myself.
