Hello all,

I have three questions.  First, my data structure is like this:

v1  v2  v3......
1    .    .
.    2    .
.    .    3
........

To stack all observations in v1, I tried the following code, but Stata 
returns "type mismatch." How can I do this work?

local i=4
while `i'<5 {
replace v`i'=v`i'+1 if v`i'==""
local i=`i'+1
}


Second, If I send an email to statalist.by starting a new email, my mail is 
not posted. If I reply to an existing one, the mail goes through. I know 
this is not recommended. How can I post a new thread? Why can I not start a 
thread? I removed my account and resubscribed, but it did not work either.


Third, I am receiving two same emails for every posting. Again, I removed my 
account and re-subscribed, but I am still getting two same emails of every 
posting. How can I fix this problem?


Thank you for your help in advance.
Mike.
