You apparently have not consulted the reference given in the -denton- help file, which explains the procedure in complete detail. Chapter 7 (VII) of the referenced documentation is the relevant portion.

1. What does the indicator variable do exactly? For instance, I have exports in quarterly frequency and total debt service in annual frequency (both are flow variables). If I do something like:
denton debtservice, indicator(exports) gen(debtservice_q)
what am I doing exactly or what assumption lies behind this procedure? I read from the help window that my new debt service variable will follow the same "pattern" as my exports variable, but I don't understand very well what this means.
