Thanks Nick.

Any suggestions? Thanks, R On 4/14/2013 3:38 AM, Nick Cox wrote:

You don't need anything fancy. Suppose the one value in Y.dta is 42. In X data, you just go gen e = 42 That's it. (If the value is a string value, say "Stata is easy", it's the same story.) That said, why do this? What analyses need it?

I have a dataset with variables a, b, c and d (stored in X.dta). There are about 5000 observations. In another dataset I have only variable e(stored in Y.dta). There is only one observation. I want to create a composite dataset with variables a, b, c, d and e. I wish to repeat the same value of e 5,000 times in my new dataset for each of the existing 5,000 observations of a, b, c, and d.
