st: Need Help with converting String Variables to Numeric Variables

Subject   st: Need Help with converting String Variables to Numeric Variables

Dear Stata List Members ,

I am working on a data set of a hospital where  one of the variables has string values as observations .

I am able to convert numeric string values to numeric values using destring command.

But I have some of the observations as "< 4", "<0.04","less than 0.1"  which needs to be converted to zero .

In Stata we have option to convert nonmumeric values to missing values , but I need to convert them to Zero .

I would  really appreciate guidance for the stata list members .

Thank you ,
Sincerely
Anwar
