Well, which -version- do you use? Probably not 10.1. In other versions, just
say -uniform()- instead of -runiform()-...

Should be more clear to say "values" between 0 and 8, sorry...

Not sure about the "rank" thing, but

set obs 1063
g var=8*runiform()
g normvar=var/8

I did
g rank=8*runiform(capscore) but I obtained:
Unknown function runiform()

What is it wrong?
Thanks again
