Hi,

I have two numeric variables in a Stata dataset: A1 and A2. Each has 26 elements. I want to create a third variable, brand, as part of a do program that has 26 brand names. I tried

gen str brand = "A" "B" and so on to "Z"

but that didn't work.  How can I create a brand variable?

Thanks,

Walt
