Greetings,
As part of a data audit, I'm recording some changes in my project do-file. Would there be a more efficient way to code the following changes, all of which involve the same observation?

replace month = 1 if id==80
replace year = 1996 if id==80
replace failed= 1 if id==80

Thank you kindly.
