You do not say what the time variable represents. If it is the time of the day, then in Stata versions 10 11, allows you to distinguish between observations at different times of the day.

In Stata, type help dates
Or in Google, search for Stata help dates

Dear All,

I have have repeated values for my data as in this example:

date               time       price
26/01/2009     83000     100.03
26/01/2009     91500     100.14
26/01/2004     150300    100.1
28/01/2009     101500    100.09
28/01/2009     112300    100.11
28/01/2009     130000    100.09

What I would like to do is to calculate the difference between two prices for each day. This means that for each day I will have a missing value because I don't want to consider the difference of prices between two days.

 I constructed a time variable such as:
generate ttime=_n
but in this way I have also the difference of prices between two days.

I need to solve this problem in order to do further analysis. Could you help me?

Many thanks,
