Dear Maarten,

Thanks for reply. I have installed cf3 by using findit command in stata.

package cf3 from

I don't want merge/update one from other file. We are doing double entry by two different operators and then compare to find the discrepancies of data entry and then third person will correct those discrepancies in the master dataset.

For that I have used cf3 with id option.
        cf3 varlist using filename , id(varname) [noverbose]

I think I have clarified. I want to store the results in a data set.

-cf3- is user written, so per the Statalist FAQ you must tell us where you got it from. This is to make sure we are talking about the same program, as there are often multiple version of user written software floating around in cyber space.

If you want more flexibility than -cf3- offers than you probably want to do this from first principle. There is a great set of tips and tricks for this kind of problems here:

Hope this helps,
