The error means what it says, I am afraid. Play around with the -expand-
line in this code to see where the limits for the -j()- variable are:


*******
vers 10.1
clear*
set obs 10

gen id=_n
expand 3200
bys id: gen year=_n+79

gen inc=rnormal(15000,7000)
 
reshape wide inc, i(id) j(year)

*******

Dear Stata Community,

I always get the error r(134) when I try to reshape!
What can I do ?
Anything conceptually wrong with my commands ?
>>
. sum

    Variable |       Obs        Mean    Std. Dev.       Min        Max
-------------+--------------------------------------------------------
        date |     32494     14804.6    105.3298      14640      14973
      permno |     32494    65554.46    23142.46      10051      92866
         ret |     32494    .0081212    .1509227  -.8353909          3

. reshape wide permno, i(date) j(ret)
ret takes on too many values
r(134);
<<<

ret takes on too many values
r(134);


Thank you so much, 

Mark
