So, you should please remember to say that when you ask questions.Martin's advice to use -label copy- was based on the standard list default: you are assumed to be using the current version of Stataunless you specify otherwise.Nickn.j.cox@durham.ac.ukMiranda Kim Thank you Nick, I'm still using Stata 10, so labutil will come in handy! Nick Cox wrote:Otherwise put:1. See the -help- for -label-.2. In Stata 11, and indeed previously, -label define- defines orchangesentirely new or existing sets of value labels, but does not permitsaving under a different name.3. In Stata 11, but not previously, -label copy- is the way to copy anexisting set of value labels under another name.4. For Stata 7 to 10, -labvalclone- from -labutil- on SSC is analternative to 3.5. For Stata 6 and below, or indeed otherwise, you can just type inthecommand -label define- for a new group.Martin Weiss ALso, if you often get stuck with such problems, NJC`S -ssc d labutil- could be for you... Miranda KimHow can I create a new label set for the values of a variable, bymodifying an old one?For example if I have: label define agegrp 1 "17-24" 2 "25-34" 3 "35-44" 4 "45-54" 5 "55-63" and I want to create a new label set with a different name, sayagegrp2that has the following values: 1 "17-24" 2 "25-34" 3 "35-44" 4 ">=45" Can I use the label set agegrp with the option modify, to create a newlabel set rather than just overwriting the agegrp label?* * For searches and help try: * http://www.stata.com/help.cgi?search * http://www.stata.com/support/statalist/faq * http://www.ats.ucla.edu/stat/stata/
