Thank you for your answer. But i realized that i was not very clear in my first post. Sorry about that.

What i want to do is that i want to compute the variance for different periods and stocks. The problem I have is that stata does not consider missing values when computing the variance.

If i write the code:

by isin: egen variance20001230=var(price) if datum>=20000101 & datum< 2000123

this gives me the 1-year variance for every stock between 200010101 and 20001230. However it does not consider missing values. If i have any missing values in the price -data for any stock in the time period  20000101-20001230 i want to set the variace for that stock equal to missing.

Maybe this problem is easier to solve?
