Subject: st: Reshaping to long format

Dear Colleagues,

I would like to reshape my price data to long format, but my data is not wide formatted as well. What should I do before I use reshape command?

Snapshot from my dataset:

firma   firmb   firmc   date
.45     .57     .77     01dec1999
.6      1.09    1.64    01jan2000
.69     .95     1.61    01feb2000
.68     .87     1.83    01mar2000
.55     .72     1.58    01apr2000

Any help is appreciated.

Yours sincerely,

Enes Agaoglu
