Dear StataList,

I understand that if one wants to find values at some particular
percentiles of a variable she can use

-centile var1, centile(pctile1 pctile2 pctile3)-

But what if I have some arbituary values and want STATA to return
their percentile? I know I can write a do file to make it automatic
but would be surprised if such a syntax did not already exist (though
I didn't find it. I use stata 9.) I'm sorry if someone asked this
before; I'm new to the list but I did check before I wrote this email.
Thanks a lot!
