Mr. Nichols, Thanks for your assistance. I am not averse to wasting away my life at the computer to get this work done. LOL! I am, however, not very much interested in spending life after death working with ArcGIS when Stata can handle the job more immediately. I jest. I'll try to be both clear and succinct. Regarding your comment on my first and second question in the previous post, what I need at this point is a .dta file that in the end will look similar to the output your 2007 example gave: that is, I would like to display my centroid variables (the xy coordinates and the nhgis gisjoin field) and its distance to nearest school of each type/sector/control level. This might have to be done for each dataset separately, but ultimately I'd like to merge the eight years of data into one .dta file. As there are nine different school types and one general school variable with all types combined, I should end up with 80 variables that show, for example, the distance to nearest postsec school from each centroid for year 2000, or the distance to nearest proprietary 2-year school from each centroid for year 2005. That is the basic file I need. Ultimately, I want something like this (there would be no blanks in the real data, of course): idvar gisjoin state distpub01 distpriv01 distprop01 1 G0101000000001 AK 10.34 60.39 1993 16983 38151 45999 G2603499490300 MI 16.63 50019 54213 60811 63009 63059 G4203939848847 TX 8.91
