I think Nick meant: gen partnerprofit = profit[5] in 3 But following this logic, and if your dataset is not large, you could do it in a loop, I think: gen partnerprofit = . forval i=1/`=c(N)' { local partnerid = partnerid[`i'] replace partnerprofit = profit[`partnerid'] in `i' } where I assume you have a partnerid variable which gives you the observation number of the partner. If your id's do not go in 1,2,3,...,n, however, you may need to do a bit more programming... and probably -merge- is the easiest.

For example: I am subject 3, my partner is subject 5; his profit is 13, now I would like to stata write in my "partnerprofit" the value 13. Thank you very much for your help!
