Hi (Eva),

I want to divide my data into two seperate files. So I would first like to use -drop in 1925486/1- to delete the last rows of the data and save the remaining part. Then I want to use -drop in 1/1925485- to delete the first part in order to save the rest of the data in a second file.

Perhaps it does not work because it is version 8..

Thanks for your help.

Silke,

it should be -drop in 1/1925486-, not the other way round. Or did you
mean -drop in 1925486/l- ? Note the "l", for last, instead of "1".

Hope this helps,
Eva

Hello,

I use Stata Version 8 and do not know what I am doing wrong:

The command:

. drop in 1925486/1

leads to the following error:

Obs. nos. out of range
r(198);

Does anyone know what is wrong?

Thanks a lot.
Silke
