Try -ssc d rowsort-. I trust you will be able to take it from there...

Hello,

I wanted to go beyond the command -egen rowmin(/varlist/)- and create
a new variable containing the second-smallest value in /varlist/,
another one with the third-smallest and so one. Could anyone suggest
me a way to do this? I searched among the extensions of egen, but I
could not find anything suitable.

Thanks in advance,

Augusto
