<> " and always have to look up how to use -postfile-, something I should remedy at some point!)." My remedy is the following template which I store in my text editor and then edit for the specific task at hand: ************* /* -postfile- example */ tempname hdle capt erase info.dta postfile `hdle' /*str10 */ suc se /* */ using info qui forv i=0/100{ cii 100 `i', level(99) post `hdle' (`i') (r(se)) } postclose `hdle' u info, clear l, noobs //sepby() sep(0) ************* Credits to Philippe`s http://www.stata-journal.com/article.html?article=pr0036 where I intially obtained parts of this template.
