Dear Statalisters,
I have three variables (a; b; C with 10,000 observations each) in long
format.
For each value of a I would like to obtain the following one:

(a1 * b1) - c1
.
.
.
.
(a1*b10,000)-c10,000;

Repeat the above reported would-be 10,000 times (i.e., from a1 to a10,000)

Create a new variable d in which the mean of each one of the 10,000
iterations are stored and can be displayed.

I suppose there's way of doing this with Stata 9.2/SE, but I cannot figure
out the proper syntax.

Thanks a lot for your kindness and for your time.

Kind Regards,

Carlo
