st: AW: AW: sum() with egenerate

BTW, I answered this post almost instantaneously, but in reverse order of my
later reply: 


" Try

*************
which _gsum
view "`r(fn)'"
*************

and you get the solution. Use -sum()- with -generate- to get the expected
behavior."



This answer never made it to the list, instead I received one of those
bounce mails from StataCorp:


" Dear Martin Weiss <martin.weiss1@gmx.de>,

You sent email to Statalist <statalist@hsphsun2.harvard.edu> and Majordomo,
the Statalist software, bounced it.  The email you sent is attached below,
but
the most likely reason for the bounce is:

Admin request of type /^\s*which\s+\S+\s*$/i at line 9  "



I am not quite sure how I violated Statalist rules with my post (I have been
pretty successful posting to this list in the last couple of months...), but
is there a connection to an early -which- in the body of the email?

Use -sum()- with -generate- to get the expected behavior.


Try

*************
which _gsum
view "`r(fn)'"
*************

and you get the solution of the riddle.

Hello everybody,

I used the sum() function in combination with egen command and it behaved
like the total() function, hence not a running sum as I expected.
Can anyone confirm this or is it an old topic?

Thanks,
Ulrich
