Hi statalisters,

```
I have a very simple and maybe stupid question, hope someone can help. I am trying to get the correct syntax for /_normal_ /to get the cumulative standard normal distribution of a variable. Any help?
```

```Thanks Martin,

Sorry for not being clear on this list. What I am trying to calculate is , cumulative density of the standard normal or the standard normal density, respectively. I was trying with
```
cumul x, gen(y)       // x = ((z-m)/sqrt(s))

```
but what I am getting is not consistent. By the way, does /cumul/ do the same job as normal(.) or normalden(.) in Stata?
