Re: st: Compare two datasets

You might try Tom Steichen's program -cf3.ado- available from the SSC site.  In

web-aware Stata, type:

findit cf3

-cf3- requires an identifier for each record, but as you appear to have double-
entered data, this would almost certainly be true in your case.  -cf3- gives 
much more useful information than -cf-.

I hope this helps.
