I am really having difficulty understanding what specifically you are
inquiring about?

First off, you are requested to clarify what program you are using and where
you got it. In this case -nmatch- is a user-written program (findit nnmatch)
and the accompanying article

What is "FOLIO" and "idllave", and what do you mean by "location of the

If these are variables in the data that are not included in the command, or
are not included in the output, then you'll likely have to merge the output
data to the original data that includes these variables. It could also be
that you may need to encode() these variables if the programs you are using
do not recognize string variables.

That's as far as I can take this without more clarity from you...

Hello, I hope you´re well.

I am working with nnmatch, and I have FOLIO and idllave of each survey as
location of the data, but when I do the nnmatch I lose the 2 string
variables (idllave, FOLIO), but I need it for the complete information

nnmatch  S06P30 treat aguaentubada Boiler Celular  Estufa Lavadora
Microondas Computadora Refrigerador Television Cuartdormir Dueterreno
Dueotracasa Animales Semtrabajo, m(1) bias(bias) exact(Automovil  Prophogar)
keep(PROEmovi.dta) replace

What could I do for keep the string variables of information ?
