switch the order of the cycles, then. First loop over the variables, then over waves: forvalues k=1/999 { if `k' < 100 local k 0`k' if `k' < 10 local k 0`k' forvalues year=1/9 { * do whatever with variable Q`k'_0`year' } } On 11/18/08, Daniel Schultz <schultzd@tcd.ie> wrote: > Hej Stas...... > Your suggestion looked quite nice.... > but when I was testing it....it is doing first all of the Variables of > the Year 2002 and than 2003 and so on. > This is not exactly what I wanted....I need, that the svyset changes > every time the Variable changed.
