I guess this refers to the -cut()- function of -egen-. 

If so, I wouldn't use that for this purpose at all. I would use -floor()- or -ceil()- or -round()-, all of which are functions (not -egen- functions). 

Then I imagine that the problem you have would not arise at all.

I used the cut command to divide my time in 5-minute intervals.

Since there were too many intervals, I created  two new variables.
Newtime for the intervals of time since 14.30 and newtime2 for the rest.

Now I would like to have just one variable with the two newtime
For example:

Newtime                 mewtime2
14:00:00                 14:35:00
14:05:00                 14:40:00
14:10:00                       .
14:15:00                       .
14:20:00
14:25:00
14:30:00

now I would like to create a new variable with both times, in this way:

newtime3
14:00:00
14:05:00
14:10:00
14:15:00
14:20:00
14:25:00
14:30:00
14:35:00
14:40:00

How could I do this?
