Dear Statalisters,

how can I generate in Stata 8.0 a new variable which contains the values assigned by the observed cumulative distribution of one variable? In other words, I would like to get those values stored in a new variable, that are used by the command "cdf varname" to plot the sample cumulative distribution function of varname.
I don't think the command "cumul varname" will not work for my case, since my variable contains several observations with the same values, but "cumul varname" assigns different values to to these, depending how they were initially ordered.

Thanks in advance,
