<> It is good to hear you are satisfied with the solution, but I am not quite sure what your data structure looks like. You request three centiles from Stata with your call -centile PF_norm, centile(5 50 95)-, but you store only one of them, the 95% one, via -postfile-. This is your prerogative, but it seems inefficient to me. What are the 5% and 50% quantile requests good for in your call? You said in an earlier post that you have to repeat this process frequently, so you may want to know that you can employ a loop to call your datasets: ******* forv i=1/2{ use "C:\...\ALL_complete_1.`i'.dta" //... your other commands } ******* The endpoint for the index here is 2, you can enter the appropriate number yourself. Does each of those datasets really only contain one interesting variable? Why are they dispersed across many datasets (just being curious)?

In case someone is interested, here´s the syntax: log using test, replace use "C:\...\ALL_complete_1.1.dta" centile PF_norm, centile(5 50 95) postfile internal lower_ci95 centile_95 upper_ci95 using "filename", replace post internal (r(lb_3)) (r(c_3)) (r(ub_3)) clear use "C:\...\ALL_complete_1.2.dta" centile PF_norm, centile(5 50 95) post internal (r(lb_3)) (r(c_3)) (r(ub_3)) postclose internal clear log close Still thanks for the help you gave me so far!
