Followed by 

gen var1 = word(text, 1) 
gen var2 = subinstr(text, word(text, 1), "", 1)

This seemed to work for me. It took a few iterations. 

infile str244 text using http://www.wolfbane.com/icd/icd8h.htm, clear 
drop in 1/39
drop in 20827/L
compress
gen entry = regexm(text, "^\(*[0-9]")
replace entry = regexm(text, "^\([E|N|Y][0-9]") if entry == 0 
replace entry = regexm(text, "^[E|N|Y][0-9]") if entry == 0 
replace entry = sum(entry) 
replace text = text[_n-1] + " " + text if entry == entry[_n-1]
sort entry, stable
by entry : keep if _n == _N
drop entry

Dear List

I would like to download the following html into stata:
http://www.wolfbane.com/icd/icd8h.htm
I would like to make the numbers from 000 - _n be var1 and the text from
cholera to be var2

Can this be done through stata or do i need to go via a program of some
sort.
I've tried searching the list, and found one example:
http://www.stata.com/statalist/archive/2007-03/msg00535.html
But i must admit i did not understand what that was all about, and i dont
think it applies to my problem.

Thank you

Lars
