Many thanks! I have used: By cusip (fyear), sort: generate firstlnsales=lnsales[1] if (lnebit [1] !=0). This one works fine. However, I would like to adjust the formula, in order to get observation 2 if lnebit [1] is 0, and then observation 3 if observation 2 is 0 and so on. Any suggestions?

April 2012 10:49 An: statalist@hsphsun2.harvard.edu Betreff: st: AW: Regressions with constant independent variable If you want to create a new variable, s.th like the following may work (if I understand you correctly): by cusip: gen salesinitial = sales if fyear=="first observation of fyear" by cusip: replace salesinitial = salesinitial[_n-1] if salesinitial==. It may be possible to do it in one step, but unfortunately I don't know how and would also be interested in a shorter solution.

ID is cusip, and t is fyear, x is sales and z is growth of sales. I would like to keep x fixed for each cusip at the level of the first observation of fyear. Do I need to create a new variable or can I adjust my regression formula? Many thanks in advance.
