Re: st: simple replace |

I'm a little confused; why not just go -replace z="A"- if you really want 'z' to be all "A"s?

Dear Statalisters, I think what I have is a simple logic question involving replace. I can't seem to find a related question in the list archive. I have data which looks something like: x y z - - - A A A A A B A A B A B B B B I want 'z' to be all "A"s but this involves replacing 'z' with a value of 'x' which is found on a different observation line. The problem is that the amount of times 'x' and 'y' overlap throughout the dataset is not consistent, and therefore I cannot use the x[_n-1] syntax for replacing. I think I could use a for-loop but I'm not sure. Does anyone see how to go about this?
