Hi!
For strange reasons one of the variables (diarr) (coded 1/2) has
format %9s so I can not use it when putting it in a sum formula in
STATA.
I tried to change its format using edit command, I looked at another
variable format it has property %8.0g so I tried using it for diarr
variable but it gives window with message "%8.0g is not a valid
display format".

Any tips?

Thank you and best regards
ziad
