You're welcome. Your very clear question gave me a good start.

Great. Thanks Michael.

 Hello Dahlia,
 You could try:
 -------begin example--------
 clear
 set obs 3
 gen var1="Microsoft"
 gen var2="Gates"
 gen var3=var1+", "+var2
 list
 -------end example--------
 The comma and space between the quote signs are optional.
 -gen- is an abbreviation for -generate-
 -set obs 3- makes a new dataset with 3 observations.
 Hope this helps,
 Michael




 Hi, I want to combine two txt fields into one.  For example, one field
 has company names such as "microsoft" and the other had owner name
 such as "Gates", and I want a third field that will combine the two
 cells and produce "microsoft Gates."  Can anyone tell me how I can do
 this in stata?

 thanks. I appreciate your help.
