Thank you. I solved my problem. By the way, if there exist ties, egen rank = rank(revenue) also creates a problem. In my case, the command produced ***.5, etc. instead of a whole number.

Reo.

As mentioned in my earlier posting, this fixes the reversal but does the
wrong thing in the presence of ties.

For ranks, use -egen, rank()-. It's as simple as that.

How about :

gen revenue_reversed = revenue * -1
sort revenue_reversed
egen rank=group(revenue_reversed)

 I am trying to create 'rank' based on total revenues. I used the
following
 command:

 sort revenue
 egen rank=group(revenue)

 The result is that the smallest revenue is 1 and the highest revenue
is 100,
 for example. How can I reverse the rank? I want the highest revenue
to be
 number '1'.
