Forwarded on behalf of Calchas. I would kindly ask that you switch to
text-only messages and send them to the list.

Re your query, you should restate the purpose and I am sure there is an easy
solution. There is no "stored values" command as far as I can see. Stata
operates on the entire column automatically, no additional input required.
Say -gen sumplusone=ttl_sum+1- and it adds 1 to every value in the column...

Thanks for the message, Martin.

But what I want is to recall the calculated values after the -gen- command
and use them for further calculations. It is something to do with the
'stored values' command: sth=r(N). How can I do it for an entire column of
values?
