Dear Jeph and Statalist. Thank you so much. I replaced "max_id" with "ind_id" in the third line of the code to get the max "ind_id" as "max_id" is not a variable name in my dataset: sum missing_employees, meanonly local maxmiss=r(max) // get the max # missing sum ind_id, meanonly local maxid = r(max) // get the max id in the dataset local order=ceil(log10(`maxid'+`maxmiss'))+1 // next power of 10, add 1 The code now appears to work wonderfully on my test dataset. I will do some more testing, but this seems right. Thanks again. Sincerely, Erik. > Date: Wed, 8 May 2013 11:36:16 -0400 > From: stata@spandrel.net > To: statalist@hsphsun2.harvard.edu > Subject: Re: st: generate new distinct individual ids by organizational id and year > > > Sorry, I didn't observe that ind_ids were unique across the sample (though it was true in your example); so we'll need > to incorporate the org_id into the new_id. > > I also used -expand- incorrectly (hence the error for missing_employees=1).
