Per the Statalist FAQ, you should not sent attachments to the list. Sending an example dataset to statalist to clarify your question is a good idea, but you cannot do so with an attachment. There are some tricks shown here on how you can still sent some example data to Statalist: <http://researchnotes.eric-a-booth.com/2010/12/example-data-for-other-stata-users.html> > For example, how would I create a local macro called "meal1" such that it includes "dairy3 green3 grain3 fruit3 protein3"? These variables are cases in the dataset. That is, they run down the far left column. The variables for these cases are things like protein, fat etc. Since I cannot see your example data, I really do not understand that question. At the very least I think you mean variable when you say local macro. See: <http://www.stata.com/statalist/archive/2008-08/msg01258.html> Hope this helps, Maarten --------------------------------- Maarten L.
