Jose,

I hope you know about my webpage:
 "A SAS User's Guide to Stata"
http://faculty.fuqua.duke.edu/home/blanc004/data_programming/sas_to_stata/

Martin is right that Stata's -inlist()- is equivalent to SAS's in().
In Stata's -inlist()- you have to put the variable being tested inside the parentheses which is not how SAS's in() works:

 if varx in (value1,value2,value3) then ...some SAS code ...;

would be:

 ..some Stata code...  if inlist(varx,value1,value2,value3)


There is not really a Stata equivalent to SAS's if-then-do programming style,
but I have an example Stata do-file page that shows how you can come pretty
close to doing that sort of programming in Stata:

I am not an SAS user myself, but you may want to look at -inlist()-
