< > Mandy said 1) In step 3. above I replace the incorrect commands with the correct ones, and then re-run the commands to update the data sets created 2) I append some extra commands to the existent do files to revise. That is, the initial incorrect commands remain in the do-files. So do files for these two ways seem like as follows: (1) ------------------------------------------------ *do file command after revise ------------------------------------------------ 2) ------------------------------------------------ . . . . .*do file initial commands(Which need to revise) .............................. extra command to revise ----------------------------------------------- Which way is better? How should I decide this? This question is important to me since it's helpful for me to get good habit of managing data sets and do files.
