Hi,

I'm having trouble with this bit of code and am wondering if anyone can help me. The 'if' within the loop if causing the program to stall and I'm getting an 'if not found' error.

gen t = 20 if agecat == 1
replace t = 5 if agecat >= 2 & agecat <= 11
replace t = 10 if agecat == 12
gen s = .
gen r = .
gen q = .
gen p = .

qui forvalues t = 1/12 {
    replace s = `s`t'' if agecat == `t'
    replace r = `r`t'' if agecat == `t'
    replace q = `q`t'' if agecat == `t'
    replace p = `p`t'' if agecat == `t'
}
