Dear All,

I am trying to convert my dataset to panel data, but since I am new to
STATA I couldn't figure how to do it. My dataset is as follows;

Date GAR(P) GAR(MV) GAR(MB) AKB(P) AKB(MV) AKB(MB) ISC(P) ISC(MV) ISC(MB)
Jan10 0.53 110 1.71 0.63 230 1.95 1.7 150 4.6
Feb10 0.47 120 1.54 0.55 205 1.71 1.63 100 4.43


GAR, AKB, ISC are the firms' names and P=price, MV=market value,
MB=market-to-book ratio.


At the end, I would like to have something like this;

Firm Date P MV MB
GAR Jan10 0.53 110 1.71
GAR Feb10 0.47 120 1.54
AKB Jan10 0.63 230 1.95
AKB Feb10 0.55 205 1.71
ISC Jan10 1.7 150 4.6
ISC Feb10 1.63 100 4.43

I would appreciate if you help me,

Best Regards,

Edward
