st: Testing for a particular value and replacing in last observation? |

Dear Statalist, assume there is one variable x with 10 observations filled with random numbers between 0 and 10. the 11th observation should carry the value 1 if ANY observation of x is <2, 2 if any observation is between 2 and 5, and 3 if any observation is bigger than 5. I tried the following: local obs = 10 local count = 0 while `count' <= `obs' { replace x = 1 if x < 2 in `count' replace x = 2 if ....and so so on } apparently, this does not work as intended, as this loop does not place the values 1, 2, 3 in the last observation but in the observation `count' I actually need an additional "in" replace x = 1 in L if x < 2 in `count' Unfortunately, stata does not allow for this systanx Do you have any hint for a workaround?
