In that spirit: I take that the only issue is filling in gaps for pairs of trading partners, i.e. the distance between A and B is necessarily the same as the distance between A and B. Then I don't see any need for a file fandango: gen first = cond(Exporter < Importer, Exporter, Importer) gen second = cond(Exporter < Importer, Importer, Exporter) egen pairs = group(first second) bysort pairs (distance) : replace distance = distance[1] if missing(distance) Nick n.j.cox@durham.ac.uk Martin Weiss This question is quite close to: http://www.stata.com/statalist/archive/2008-10/msg00578.html Might want to try your luck there...
