Hi all, the data is list with the following column headers:

countryname countrycode seriesname seriescode y1960 ...... y2010

My question is how to plug these variables into the reshape command
Some of u will suggest using user written commands, they keep failing
no matter how many variables, countries, or years I drop.
So simply if Stata can do it with the  built in commands what is the
right syntax to use?

All the best
