Well, there is no undo button in Stata, but you can -preserve- your data before you carry out anything dangerous. -restore- then takes you back to the data you had when you issued -preserve-. Or -save- beforehand under a new name...

Following on from this, I wonder if there is a drop and recover option
is Stata. What I mean is if you dropped observation/s or variable/s, is
there a way to recover them?

Hi Daniel

In the absence of more information, I will assume that each row has a unique identifier. Say your identifier is number_id and you want to remove the row for number_id #49. You can use the command drop drop if number_id==49
