Dear Nik,
what follows will do the trick (in Stata 9.2/SE):

------------------begin example-----------------
set obs 10
gen ecolbs = 10 in 1/5
replace ecolbs=0 in 6/10
gen ecobuy = 1 if ecolbs > 0
replace ecobuy = 0 if ecolbs==0
------------------end example-------------------

HTH and Kind Regards,
Carlo

I'm having trouble getting this to generate. gen ecobuy = 1 if ecolbs > 0 &
ecobuy = 0 if ecolbs = 0. What am I doing wrong here?

Thanks for the help.
