st: Using 9 figure numbers in Stata |

Dear Statalisters, I am trying to input some numbers in stata which are higher than 1 million. To this, stata does not show the full figure only "1.00e+12". If I try to add 2 collums of these numbers, then I get a figure which does not seem usable. Does anyone know how to make stata show numbers which are higher than 1 million?

Here are some: 1. if "`y1'" == "" local y1 = 0 local x1 = `x1' + `y1' 2. local x1 = cond("`y1'" != "", `x1' + `y1', `x1') 3. if "`y1'" != "" local x1 = `x1' + `y1' Nick n.j.cox@durham.ac.uk George Chioran My code goes like this: local x1 = `x1’ + `y1’. I get the `y1’ variable through repeated loops and sometimes `y1’ is not assigned any value. When `y1’ does not have any value, the line local x1 = `x1’ + `y1’ stops my program and I get an invalid syntax error. My question is: Could I somehow make the local `y1’ to be equal to zero, or not to be taken into consideration in my sum in case `y1’ is not assigned any value? * * For searches and help try: * http://www.stata.com/help.cgi?search * http://www.stata.com/support/statalist/faq * http://www.ats.ucla.edu/stat/stata/ * * For searches and help try: * http://www.stata.com/help.cgi?search * http://www.stata.com/support/statalist/faq * http://www.ats.ucla.edu/stat/stata/
