What does "doubled" mean? Doubled in value or twice present where there was only one entry previously? Try to find out what happened in the -merge-r by typing -ta _merge-...

Betreff: st: do file

Dear Statalist,
is there any thing wrong with the following do-file:
/* sort and save the using data*/
cd H:\my\2007
use written, clear
sort patient_id
save, replace

/* sort the master data*/
use 13, clear
sort patient_id

/* merge based on "patient_id" and save*/
merge patient_id using written
save final07, replace

i don't know why, but all the observations in the final07 have doubled.Why has this happened? what can i do?
Best wishes
