Thanks Nick and Martin. Actually, the question is a bit trickier than "append" can handle. The structure of data 1 and 2 are different, thus, the append would result in all missing values for the mitsmatch variables. Thus, append using data2 will result in all missing values for x, y, z in the combined data set. Actually, I would like to have the combined data as follows: Combined data: id x y z v 1 4 a 7 missing 1 4 b 8 missing 1 4 c 9 missing 1 4 missing missing 4 1 4 missing missing 2 Given: Data 1 id v 1 4 1 2 2 6 2 7 ------------- Data 2: id x y z 1 4 a 7 1 4 b 8 1 4 c 9 2 6 a 7 2 6 b 8 2 6 c 9 On Mon, Apr 13, 2009 at 3:43 AM, Quang Nguyen <quangn@gmail.com> wrote: > Dear All: > > Suppose I have the 2 following data set1: > > Data 1 > id v > 1 4 > 1 2 > 2 6 > 2 7 > ------------- > > Data 2: > id x y z > 1 4 a 7 > 1 4 b 8 > 1 4 c 9 > 2 6 a 7 > 2 6 b 8 > 2 6 c 9 > > > Note that _x_ is a fixed effect in data 2 as well as the combined data > set.
