When you say you want to turn them into variables, I am guessing, you want the saveval of each cropid

Here is one way (and there may be neater ways)

input hhid cropid saleval
1 101 2000
1 102 3000
1 103 1000
2 101 200
3 102 1300
3 103 1500
end

.reshape wide saleval, i(hhid) j(cropid)
.list

hhid   sale~101   sale~102   sale~103
1       2000       3000       1000
2        200          .          .
3          .       1300       1500

If you really must have the new variables as cropid101 etc, you can use -renpfix- to change the prefix from saleval to
cropid

.renpfix saleval cropid

Austin,

Thank you for your comments. What I want is to turn them into variables cropid 101, cropid102, etc. I will check the reshape help.
