Even better, -tab, generate()- will do it for you in one line!



thx for your advice, nick.
sorry for being a bit too imprecise.

i have 2 tables: table 1 (dataset) with some variables incl. one variable
"atc-code" with 700+ agents (14000+ rows). for counting that, the "tab,
gen()-thing" is perfectly suitable.

but: i have table 2, a specific subset of agents (200+) and their atc- code,
one agent = one row.

my working question: how many times is any of the agents in table 2
represented in the variable atc-code in table 1.

hope, i sort of disentangled the problem a bit.
