Dear all, 

I have a spell dataset with some missing values of variables as follows:

ID   Start   End     Y      
766  1987   1988     1     
766  1988   1990     .     
766  1990   1994     0     
768  1988   1991     1     
768  1991   1993     0     
769  1987   1994     .     
769  1994   1995     1     

If the missing values can be recoded with values of those of the next chronological spell, are there any commands in STATA which can support doing such task? Thank you very much in advance.
Best regards, 
Kai Huang
