To add to Jochen's comment:If you were hoping to have a new 'ID' variable that keeps theinformation from all the ID variables V1, V2, and V3, you couldcreate a string variable...here are some examples:****************** clear input V1 V2 V3 1 . 1 2 . 2 3 3 3 4 4 . . 5 5 6 . 6 end // foreach x in V* { recode `x' (.=99) // <-- So that -regexr- isn't tripped up later tostring `x', replace } gen str10 v_combined = V1+"_"+V2+"_"+V3 gen v_combined2 = regexr(v_combined, "99", "x") sencode v_combined2, gene(uniqueID) gsort(+v_combined2) label(id) list ****************** ~Eric __ Eric A.

If this is the case you could-replace v1 = v2 if v1 == . & v2 != .- -replace v1 = v3 if v1 == . & v2 ==. & v3 != .--count if v1 == .- /* should return 0, otherwise there areobservations in your data that are not uniquely determined byeither of your three ID variables.*/-drop v2 v3- /* of course, only if you got all IDs caught in v1 */ HTH, Jochen -----Ursprüngliche Nachricht-----Von: owner-statalist@hsphsun2.harvard.edu [mailto:owner-statalist@hsphsun2.harvard.edu] Im Auftrag von "SERGIO M.

I have variables for 3 years showing an ID: V1 V2 V3 1 . 1 2 . 2 3 3 3 4 4 . . 5 5 6 . 6I need only one ID variable. How can I obtain one column with alltheID numbers?
