As for the first question, what are you hoping to achieve by explicitly subscripting with _n? The result without subscript should be the same as _n simply contains the row number of the observation in question. You need to make the circumstances clearer for the list. Secondly, put an asterisk -*- in front of anything you intend as a comment.

The second of the following two commands return an error message. But for some other _n it works fine. What may be the problem? count if fillq439[_n] == 3850 count if fillq439[_n] == 7000*0.55 2. On the command window, what is the syntax to indicate Stata not to consider a command line? For instance, there should be something like if I write the command between backslashes, stat does skip that line without producing any output? (like in between /* sum variablename /*) * * For searches and help try: * http://www.stata.com/support/faqs/res/findit.html * http://www.stata.com/support/statalist/faq * http://www.ats.ucla.edu/stat/stata/ * * For searches and help try: * http://www.stata.com/support/faqs/res/findit.html * http://www.stata.com/support/statalist/faq * http://www.ats.ucla.edu/stat/stata/
