Dear all,

when using -reshape-, is there any way to save the levels of the "j" variable?

To make my question clearer: a typical -reshape- command will return the output

 *** begin output

. reshape wide inc, i(id) j(year)
(note: j = 1980 1982 1983 1987)

Data                               wide   ->   long
-----------------------------------------------------------------------------

*** end output

So the question is: can this list of numbers (in the example above,
"1980 1982 1983 1987") be saved as a local, for future use?

Thanks in advance,

Davide
