I can't reproduce or explain this.

I suddenly experience that all my entries in stata are saved as
integers?
How can that be?
If I for instance type:

. clear

. set obs 10
obs was 0, now 10

. gen a=2.73456

. disp a
2

While if I use some function it works:

. gen z=uniform()
. disp z
.88350743

What am I doing wrong?
