" makes certain tasks very difficult to do."


Barth: Please describe the tasks you are referring to, and I am certain
there is a solution for them. I work with Stata on a daily basis, and I have
never wished for two datasets to be open simultaneously. What you can have,
for instance, is a -postfile- which gathers things you send to it, and
returns them to you when you want it to.

Thanks for your replyMartin. Between the fact that Stata only allows one
datafile open at a time and the fact that it doesn't support arrays makes
certain tasks very difficult to do. I will most likely have to do part of
the work in another application.

Thanks again

Barth

It is pretty much the same issue for all Stata versions. There is only one
dataset open at any time, even though you can of course -merge- and -append-
as much as you like. You can also have multiple instances open, but they
would not be able to communicate with each other...

Hello

Is there a way to have multiple datasets open at one time in Stata version
9? I want to simulate item responses based on IRT item parameters stored in
one dataset and person parameters stored in a second dataset.

Thanks

Barth
