I am working with very long string variables which I need to break up in different ways. To do so I am using the ends (egen) command. After some puzzling results (i.e. the command was working on some variables but not on others), I think I discovered that the ends (egen) command only searches for the specified text over the first 110/112 characters. Is this correct? If so, is there anyway to force the command to span all characters? If not, I think a warning should be introduced in the STATA manuals.
