Uunfortunately for you this is indeed fantasy syntax. You have to break down L(1/`x').(abc >= `z'/100) So you first have to create gen myvar = abc >= `z'/100 and then do something like this gen true = 1 forval k = 1/`x' { replace false = 0 if L`k'.myvar == 0 } Later drop myvar true Nick On Thu, May 5, 2011 at 4:48 PM, <Hauptseminar@gmx.de> wrote: > I am trying to integrate time operators and a loop in a if qualifier. > > Here is my code: > > forvalues x = 1/10 { > forvalues z = 1/100 { > > gen hrec_`z'_`x' = 0 > > gen hrec_start_`z'_`x' = 0 > > replace hrec_`z'_`x' = 1 if L(1/`x').(abc >= `z'/100) & ( vw >= 0 | dvw >=0) > > replace hrec_start_`z'_`x' = 1 if hrec_`z'_`x'==1 & L1.hrec_`z'_`x'==0 > > replace hrec_`z'_`x'=0 if (abc < `z'/100 | vw<=0) & hrec_start_`z'_`x' ~=1 > } > } > > Stata wont let the time operator L(1/`x') work in the if qualifier and I understand the reason for this.
