Nick, great! Now, one more complication. Your advice works if there are dyads in just one year. But assume now that there is also a year variable. OK, with "fillin c1 c2 year" I get the dataset in a nice rectangular shape. What adjustment do I need to make for the other four lines:
gen max = max(c1,c2)
gen min = min(c1,c2)
bysort max min (x) : assert _N == 2
by max min: replace x = x[1] if missing(x)
Thanks, Eric

(not tested; shorter solutions may exist)
gen max = max(c1,c2)
gen min = min(c1,c2)
bysort max min (x) : assert _N == 2
by max min: replace x = x[1] if missing(x)
For example:
2-1 and 1-2 both have maximum 2 and minimum 1.
We sort so that ties on -min- and -max- are together, and check that
they do indeed occur in pairs.
Within each pair, we sort on -x-, so that missings
go to the end. Then we copy downwards within each pair.
