Thanks Nick and sorry for the lack of clarity. -decile- does not exist, I meant -centile-, my mistake. What I want are sums and means of the same variable that was used to determine the percentiles -- but now that you mention it, it would nice to have that on other variables too!

You're right about -pctile-. But what do you want? sums, means of some variable y in classes determined by selected percentiles of another variable x? sums, means of a variable x in classes determined by selected percentiles of the same variable x?
