Thanks as always to Kit Baum, a new version of the -creplace- package is now downloadable from SSC. In Stata, use the -ssc- command to do this, or -adoupdate- if you already have an old version of -creplace-.

The -creplace- package is described as below on my website. The new version contains a -version 11- statement, which was previously missing (my fault). Users of Stata Version 10 can still download the Stata Version 10 version of -creplace- by typing, in Stata,

net from "";

and selecting and installing -creplace-.

Best wishes

      creplace: Exchange values cyclically between variables

      creplace is an extended version of replace, which exchanges values
      cyclically between variables in a list of two or more variables.  By
      default, the values in each variable are replaced by values from the
      next variable in the list, or by values from the first variable, in
      the case of the last variable.  Optionally, the values in each
      variable are replaced by values from the previous variable in the
      list, or by values from the last variable, in the case of the first
      variable.  If there are only two variables in the list, then their
      values will simply be exchanged.  Variables in the list must be all
      numeric or all string.  After exchanging the values, creplace will
compress these variables to the smallest storage type possible without
      loss of information.
