Re: st: AW: How to add the same block of data to every individual |

A better way would be to use -joinby-. clear input byte id byte x 1 4 2 6 3 7 end generate dummy=1 preserve clear input str1 y byte z a 7 b 8 c 9 end gen dummy=1 tempfile mrg save `"`mrg'"' restore joinby using `"`mrg'"' drop dummy sort id y list, sepby(id) Best wishes, Sergiy Radyakin PS: variable dummy (substitute any name, which is not in either of your datasets) is needed here because otherwise Stata complains that there is no common variable to join by. Perhaps it is a sensible default behaviour, when there is nothing to join by, just attach one dataset to each observation of the other??
