Hi, Statalist,

I have a number of variables, say x1-x10, with different number of observations all containing strings. I need to select those strings that (or simply to count how many strings) are present in x1-x2, x1-x3, and so on; how many are present in x2-x3, x2-x4, and so on ....but not in x1 ..... The same string can appear at different lines (say observation 1 for x1 and observation 3 for x2).

I'm writing to ask whether there is a way to do this.

Thanks a lot.
