Hi Nick, Yes you were right about the syntax, thanks anyway Jesper. I've worked out that the code: egen double flows = sum(weight), by(lfs2) Causes the code to for some reason delete all observations. Any idea why that would be the case? In this case lfs2 is a string variable, so all I'm generating is a new set of variables "flows" that sums the "weight" of observations by lfs2. Is there anyway I can produce the same result of this line of code without using egen or sum(weight)? I'm pretty sure the problem's with one of these two commands.

I want to run some existingcode byregion and by state, so I just added a line of code at the beginning to run the program by region or by state. The problem is that while the code by region works fine, the code for state gives a "__000001 not found" error. The code for region is: **2. match_flows forvalues y=1/4 { local x=197601 while `x' <= 201012 { quietly { if `x' != 197601 & `x' != 197801 & `x' != 198507 & `x' !=198510 & `x' != 199401 & `x' !=

Using the trace command, I've managed to deduce that it's something to do with the egen code: egen double flows = sum(weight), by(lfs2) That causes the "__000001 not found" error. Please help!
