<> Well, the "__000000" thing is the internal name for the temp you created. I wanted to point out that this compares the FIRST observation and its "touse" value. If the first value of "touse" is one, then this statement is true, otherwise false. Maybe that is what you want, maybe not... ************* sysuse auto, clear if mpg>20{ di in red "MPG bigger than 20" } if mpg>25{ di in red "MPG bigger than 25" } list mpg in 1 ************* HTH Martin -----Ursprüngliche Nachricht----- Von: owner-statalist@hsphsun2.harvard.edu [mailto:owner-statalist@hsphsun2.harvard.edu] Im Auftrag von Ilona Carneiro Gesendet: Mittwoch, 25.

With tr: byid I get: if __000000 { But I don't know what that means?
