Tomas,

that is a very good reference, but your task is much easier than most of the stuff in there :-) Still, worth checking out, no doubt :-)

As a follow up,

I know of a command in Stata that only takes the year of a date,

e.g. generate newvar = year(date of birth), which will generate a new variable containing only the year of birth.

Something similar to this would be great!

Hello all,

I have a string variable, say "A###" (i.e. A112, A222, A344, etc.).

How would I code in Stata to generate a new variable that includes only the "A"?

In summary, I have a variable, "A###", and I want to generate a new variable, "A".

Similarly, I have a variable, "B###", and I want to generate a new variable, "B".


Any ideas on how I can do this in Stata?

In Excel, I would just use text to columns, and break it down into two separate columns. Anything like this in Stata?

Thank you!
