<> I am forwarding this email by Feng to let the list know the status of this thread :-) HTH Martin -----Ursprüngliche Nachricht----- Von: Shuaizhang Feng [mailto:fengsz@yahoo.com] Gesendet: Donnerstag, 9. April 2009 17:24 An: martin.weiss1@gmx.de Betreff: Re: st: RE: how to save output from TABLE or TABSTAT as a stata .dta data file Hi Martin: Thank you very much for your help. The -replace- option works fine for my purpose. -collapse- brings trouble to me as I am running the command mutliple times, generating multiple data sets with the intention to join them together at the end. But when some of the data set that -collapse- geneate is empty, it stops there. Even when I use -cpature- to force it, the data set still remains the orginal. I guess if I have "if .. else" control to first determine whether the dataset if empty, then maybe I can get rid of that problem.
