Hi everybody , 

I am working on a dataset with a  multiple variables.I am copying only a part of the dataset here for clarity of question.
----------------------------------------------
var1		var2		var3		var4
	
560.9	596.1	568		305.1
355.8	441.4	496		530.81
530.81		.	.		.	
568		530.81	.		414
701.9	565.1	.		.
714		530.81	493.9	729.1
564		305.1	789.04	.	
537		786.59	403.9	585.9
566		569.2	995.92	565.1
----------------------------------------------

Question : 

How do I create a variable(Eg: newvar) whose value would be 1 if any value in a row would be equal to a particular value( eg 701.8 etc) or a set of values( eg 701.8 456.5 22.35 etc) .

As the values are not integers the "egen command"  would not work here !! 

Thank you very much for your help 
Sincerely 
Anwar
