gen id2=LOTE*1000000000+TIPO*100000000+FOLIO*1000+VIV*100+R101*1

in excel the results produced were:  1,400,317,162,918 for the case
with larger values and  1,000,001,001 for the case with lower values.
The thing is that when I applied the formula in Stata the results are
wrong. I thought that the error comes from the number of values shown
in stata, but after changing to format id %14.0f the results are still
wrong.
What I got for the case of minimum values is the following: 1,000,001,024

Does anybody knows what is possibly causing this mistake? Thanks for
your kindly help.
