Is there an equivalent of egen function "rowlast(varlist)" for string
variables?

-egen . . .,  rowlast(. . .)- works with string variables for me.  What problem
are you having?

Joseph Coveney

. clear *

. set obs 2
obs was 0, now 2

. generate str a = "A"

. generate str b = "B"

. replace a = "" in 1
(1 real change made)

. replace b = "" in 2
(1 real change made)

. egen str rowlast_for_string = rowlast(a b)

. list, noobs

  +------------------+
  | a   b   rowlas~g |
  |------------------|
  |     B          B |
  | A              A |
  +------------------+

P.S.  It seems curious that Partners Compliance would ever send an e-mail
message containing patient information via the Internet.
