The multiplying by 10 worked beautifully--thank you Erik (and Maartin and Nick) --Ann -----Original Message----- From: owner-statalist@hsphsun2.harvard.edu [mailto:owner-statalist@hsphsun2.harvard.edu] On Behalf Of Nick Cox Sent: Wednesday, August 11, 2010 4:57 PM To: statalist@hsphsun2.harvard.edu Subject: st: RE: RE: RE: RE: FW: producing value labels when value has decimal point Yes, I imagine so, although specifying a -format()- to -tostring- is often sufficient to overcome that problem. -tostring- by default and by intent is ultra-cautious on your behalf. Nick n.j.cox@durham.ac.uk Miller, Ann C. I tried the -tostring- before -recast-, and got the error that it could "not be converted reversibly: no replace". Is this because of the decimal point precision issue you mention below? * * 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/
