Hi Statalisters:

I'm having some problems with reshape, probably something really simple.

I have a long dataset with two variables: caseid yr. I want to reshape to wide, 
so it would be: caseid y1999 y2000 y2001 etc.
caseid is a string variable, so I've converted yr to a string as well.
I do:

reshape wide yr, i(caseid) j(yr) string

and I get:
(note: j = 1999 2000 2001 2002 2003 2004 2005 2006 2007 2008 2009 2010)
variable yr not found

Any advice?

Robin
