A list of all connected managers can be generated directly using the
-joinby- command:

*----------- begin example -------------
version 12

clear
input fid str1 mid
1       A
1       B
1       C
2       A
2       B
2       D
end

tempfile main
save "`main'"

* within each firm, form all pairwise combinations of managers
use "`main'"
rename mid mid2
joinby fid using "`main'"
list fid mid mid2, noobs sepby(mid2)

* reduce to connected managers list
sort mid mid2
by mid mid2: keep if _n == 1
drop if mid2 <= mid
list mid mid2, noobs sepby(mid)
tempfile connect
save "`connect'"

* to get a complete list of all possibilities
* form all pairwise combinations of managers
use "`main'", clear
keep mid
sort mid
by mid: keep if _n == 1
tempfile mgrs
save "`mgrs'"
rename mid mid2
cross using "`mgrs'"
sort mid mid2
list mid mid2, noobs sepby(mid)
drop if mid2 <= mid

* final list
merge 1:1 mid mid2 using "`connect'"
gen connect = _merge == 3
sort mid mid2
list mid mid2 connect, noobs sepby(mid)
*------------ end example --------------
