You may want to peruse [U], sect. 13.2.4, for more information re "logical
operators"...

Maybe you wanted:

*******
list if Cohort=="Group 2" & A09!=.
*******

The string "and" was bound to cause an error message...

BTW, one more question.

What if the groups are ever changing, e.g. sometimes groups 1 and 4 are
missing, and it will end up like the following:

Cohort    Tot08    Tot09    A08    A09

Group 2    10         3          0
?
Group 3    3            4          2          ?
Group 5    3
8          0          ?
Group 6    0           31         0          ?
Group 7    266       245      181       ?

if we use the same display command -di in r "Second value of A09: " A09[2]-,
it will show the value of Group 3 instead of Group 2.

I try in vain to use the following command

di in r if Cohort=="Group 2" and A09!=.

to lock the output to Group 2 but there was an error message. Any help will
be great!
