-replace- expects "oldvar =exp", so no, I do not think there is a more
efficient way. Multiple instances of the same -if- qualifier always make it
advisable to throw it into a -local- 

local mycond " if id==80"
replace month = 1 `mycond'
replace year =  1996 `mycond'
replace failed= 1 `mycond'

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.

Best wishes,
Michael McCulloch
