Dear statalist,

to describe my data, I decided to use the collapse command.

Since I have quite a few variables I am unhappy by sorting them in alphabetic order. Is it possible to sort them in a user-defined order?

The table 1 shall become table 2
table1
_var _stat
age 50
exp 14
school 5

table2
_var _stat
age 50
school 5
exp 14

All suggestions are welcomed.
Thanks
Hans
