Well I need them ask a code, I can not destring them. Maybe I ask my
question in the wrong way, but in general what I need is to figure it out
what "ndc" has more than 2 "gpi" and that gpi is a code with 14 digit.

Well, how is Stata supposed to figure out whether string "2" is greater than
string "3"? Numbers in the format of string have no natural order. Just
-destring- them.

Hi,

I have a question about list command; this is what I'm doing:

list ndc old_ndc e49_ gpi g64_ if gpi>"2"

gpi is a str variable (it is a 14 digit code) & I know is wrong but I can
not figure it out how I can ask the program give me all ndc that has 2 or
more gpi.Thanks

Regards -- DSA
