Hello

 I have a panaldata set. I want to use the brandnames as the panel ID
variable, but obviously Stata doesnt accpet a string variable as the panel
ID var. How can i create a variable that defines a unique numbre for every
brand name so i can use it as the panel ID var for my paneldata?

Thanks a lot for your help. 

Regards
Toby
