i have a simple problem about merging datasets.

i would like to add variables to analytic.dta from master.dta.

analytic.dta contains a subset of variables from master.dta. both datasets
have the same observations.  how do i add a specific set of variables from
master.dta to analytic.dta? i don't want to merge all the data, only certain
variables.

i'd appreciate any help. thanks!
What you want is...
merge varlist1 using master, keep( varlist2 )

where varlist2 is the set of variables that you want to take from master.
varlist 1 is the set of key variables.

I hope this is helps.
