I know how to use corr2data to generate matrixes with know
properties. However, what if one would like to generate
binary data that correlates at a specific value with a
continuous or other binary data? Is there a direct way to do
this instead of generating continuous data and then
dichotomizing it?

Some tricks for doing that are discussed in:
Maarten L. Buis (2007) Stata tip 48: Discrete uses for uniform(). The Stata Journal 7(3):434-435.

Hope this helps,
Maarten
