<> Good call on the missing values front. The other thing to potentially be wary of is that missing values in your rows or cols variables will cause the -sparse()- code to do odd things. A possible fix is below, but it may be easiest just to ensure there aren't any missing values in your initial x matrix. ********************************************************* mata: real matrix sparse(real matrix x) { real matrix y real scalar k y = J(colmax(x[,1]),colmax(x[,2]),.) for (k=1; k<=rows(x); k++) { if (x[k,1]!=. & x[k,2]!=.) y[x[k,1],x[k,2]] = x[k,3] } return(y) } end ********************************************************** Tirthankar Chakravarty <tirthankar.chakravarty@gmail.com> wrote: <> <> Many apologies.
