I see. Now I get it, in my actual file, I had generated new variables using -bys actual_panel_variable=....- (actual panel variable is string), The panel variable for xtset has to be numeric, so if equivalently I use -bys panel_variable_id=...- , no error is reported. Thanks very much indeed, Martin for helping me learn by -do-ing! On Thu, Jul 22, 2010 at 9:51 PM, Martin Weiss <martin.weiss1@gmx.de> wrote: > > <> > > I do not quite see your point.
