st: reshape

Dear Statalist,

I am trying to reshape from wide to long using the following command
but I get the error as reported below .
/**reshape	long	yr,	i(country)	j(year) **/
I know country is not unique because indicator has 4 levels and
country is repeated. Any help would be appreciated. Thanks in advance.

**--error message----------
reshape long yr, i(country) j(year)
(note: j = 2004 2005 2006 2007 2008 2009 2010)
i=country does not uniquely identify the observations;
there are multiple observations with the same value of country.
Type "reshape error" for a listing of the problem observations.
