Do you mean:
replace wt = round(wt)

Probably better would be:
gen r_wt = round(wt)

even better would be:
gen long r_wt = round(wt)

If you always want to round up replace -round- with -ceil-, and if you
always want to round down replace -round- with -floor-, as was
discussed in numerous previous posts.

Hope this helps,
