Also, local alpha 1 2 3 4 5 local alpha : subinstr local alpha "1 " "" In general, you can't change a macro without changing that macro, so some kind of re-definition is essential. But how you do it is not tightly prescribed. Nick n.j.cox@durham.ac.uk Martin Weiss See - help macrolists- ******* local alpha 1 2 3 4 5 di "`alpha'" local not 1 local alpha: list alpha- not di "`alpha'" ******* raoul reulen Suppose I define the content of a local macro named "alpha" as : .local alpha 1 2 3 4 5 Can I adjust the content of the local macro without having to redefine the local macro? Can I remove, for example, the first number such that the content is now 2 3 4 5 rather than 1 2 3 4 5? Thus, if I type: .di "`alpha'" I (obviously) get: 1 2 3 4 5 but I want: 2 3 4 5 Obviously, .di "`alpha'-1" or something wouldnt work.... * * 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/
