Thank you for reply.
It seems the problem has not been solved.
I do not want to list all the observations meeting "z<5".
Firstly, I get the combination of x and y appearing in the results of "z<5". Then I want to list all the observations with the combination of x and y, maybe in the current data or in another data.
In my firt posting,
"I know -levelsof- can solve the problem if not the combination but just one variable."
For example,
levelsof x if z<5,loc(a)
foreach i of loc a {
l if x==`i'
}
Now I doubt if not a variable but a combination (such as two variables),
how to do it?
Grace
