Hi,

I have a data set with the following variables:

importer     exporter     commoditycode   tradevalue

Belgium      Argentina    1               123
Belgium      Argentina    2               456
Luxemburg    Argentina    1               789
Luxembourg   Argentina    3               147

I want to generate new observations such that importer is Belgium-Luxembourg
and tradevalue is the combined trade value for the two countries for the
respective commodity.

Can someone tell me how I can do that?

Sorry if it is a very simple question. I am new to stata and I have looked at
all the resources available to me but could not find a solution.

Thanks.

Kremena
