Subject: st: Presenting data in a desired form

Dear Statalist,

Good evening!

If I have a data set in the Stata editor as follows:

   Name    CandidateNo    Subject    Grade    Mark 
1. xxx        1234        English      A       80
2. xxx        1234        Maths        B       65
3. xxx        1234        Chemistry    C       55
4. yyy        0165        English      D       40
5. yyy        0165        Maths        E       30
6. zzz        3656        English      C       50
7. zzz        3656        Maths        B       67


Q1. How can I separate each candidate in an individual txt file with all
their subjects in it?

Q2. How can I arrange the data in the following form?

_________________________________

Name     CandidateNo   
xxx        1234

Subject     Grade   Mark
English       A      80
Maths         B      65
Chemistry     C      55
_________________________________

Any help will be highly appreciated - also any book/webpage I can read
relating to this?

Calchas
