In the absence of evidence to the contrary, you are a Stata 11 user (this also applies to Miranda Kim earlier). So many Stata commands now take the -fvvarlist-s which makes the task of creating dummies redundant in many cases...

Betreff: st: reconding variable

Dear statalist

I have to recode one variable (with numbers from 1 to 300) into 300 different dummy variables; is there a command to do it quickly? or should I make 300 reconding (one per each new dummy variable)?

Thanks
