"levelsof may hit the limits imposed by your Stata. However, it is typically used when the number of distinct values of varname is modest." (from -h levelsof-). I should have anticipated this problem. Are the levels of your "a" in any way regularly spaced (to enable application of -forvalues-)?

Dear Statalisters, I have performed successfully Martin's helpful syntax using -levelsof- on a sample of 20 distinct values for var a. However, when I tried to repeat the loop for the total 10,000 levels of var a I got an error message(admittedly, the recommended limit for -levelsof- is a modest number of distinct values for varlist, so I cannot complain about this useful ado.file). Is there any way to work this around? Please find below the command lines I typed along with the error message I got at the end of the sequence: . levelsof ICER_round, loc(levels) *around 10,000 levels are still reported after rounding to the nearest whole number . foreach lev of local levels { 2. g result`lev'=` ICER_round'* Delta_Q- Delta_C 3. } invalid syntax r(198); Thanks a lot for your kindness and for your time.

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.
