Thanks for your suggestion, Eric!

I just repeated employing the commands 'preserve' and 'restore'  to
generate different sub-sample datasets, like follows:



capture program drop winsor_all
program define winsor_all

	foreach var of varlist Invest_Ratio Employ_Level Sales_growth
delta_NWC_by_Assets Investments_by_Assets ln_Assets
Cash_flow_by_Assets Tax_Ratio RPT_Ratio CF {
		winsor `var', gen(temp) p(0.01)
		drop `var'
		rename temp `var'
	}

end


use dta\data_original_all, clear

preserve

winsor_all

foreach var of varlist credit_NERI decentr_NERI legal_NERI market_NERI
ln_CRMP FD_1 FD_2 pref_policy ln_RCC mkt1 mkt2 {
	gen CF_`var' = `var'*D_PRI*CF
}

save dta\data_all, replace

restore


preserve

keep if D_PRI != 1

winsor_all

foreach var of varlist credit_NERI decentr_NERI legal_NERI market_NERI
ln_CRMP FD_1 FD_2 pref_policy ln_RCC mkt1 mkt2 {
	gen CF_`var' = `var'*D_PC*CF
}

save dta\data_SOE, replace

restore

... ...

and many criterion to form different sub-samples
