Agreeing with the other responses, it does look like you want to transpose the data. Here's some code that (I think) gets the data the way you want it.



input mAug_99 mSep_99 mOct_99 str6 variables
1 3 5 v1
2 4 6 v11
end

xpose , varname clear
drop in l
rename _varname month
replace month = substr(month, 2, .)

It is not much clear to me what you want to do. If you just want to
transpose your data try

xpose, clear
