Here is a solution using Mata. Note that line 12 of this code will wrap in this email. Ensure that in your do-file "mata: mCtemp[...]" to "[...]rowsum(st_matrix("B`i'")))" is one contiguous line. Avoiding this will require a little more work, but can be done. Also, you will need to install Ben Jann's -moremata- package. ****************************************** clear* clear mata forv i=1/20 { matrix A`i' = matuniform(25,36) matrix B`i' = matuniform(25,36) matrix C`i' = J(25, 1, 0) } forv i=1/20 { // need Ben Jann's -moremata- package mata: mCtemp = mm_cond(rowsum(st_matrix("A`i'")):> rowsum(st_matrix("A`i'")), rowsum(st_matrix("A`i'")), rowsum(st_matrix("B`i'"))) mata: st_replacematrix("C`i'", mCtemp) } ****************************************** 2010/4/23 Radaf paf <ladwen@hotmail.com>: > Hi all, > > I have a total of 20 matrices, A1-A10 and B1-B10 of size > 25x36 > > I am trying to do the sum of each row of the matrix A and > compare them with the sum of each row of the matrix B.
