Dear Statalisters,

I am looking for a solution to the following problem.

I have 2 variables, A and B. I have values of A for all observations and values of B for some. A and B are both cost variables such that (B=A +extra cost). I need to generate a new variable C, such that C=B (for observations
having a value for B), otherwise C=A

I'd be highly obliged if I get a solution to this problem.
