If your discrete variable is consists of zeros and 
ones, than you usually don't have to. If one 
variable distinguishes between more than two 
groups, than you can use -xi- prefix.

I know this question has been once answered by Kit Baum.
But I search the list and could not retrieve the thread.

How could I tell stata to distinguish between continuous and
discrete (categorical or dummy type) variables?

Best regards.
