I have recently been working with STATA's time series options. The manual
seems to indicate that a variable can be seasonally differenced in STATA,
however I can't find the syntax. The first difference is simple enough 
e.g.:   "generate newvariable = D.oldvariable", but what is the code if one
wants to difference e.g. with respect to the 12th period?

I have also noticed that when STATA calculates a partial autocorrelation
function for a series the results differ from the results generated by SPSS
for the same series. Can anyone explain that?

Thanks in advance
