This works very well, but I ran into the 1,200 row x 80 column limitation in "tab". It would be great if this feature was added to "table", which does not have the same limitation. I am still trying out the more elaborate solutions. There were no missing values in var3, but there were missing values in my matrix, so I am trying to figure out what went wrong. Thanks!
