st: scalar do not allow -if-

Dear Statalisters,

In a small simulation I generate data and analyze them with 3 regression methods. In the bottom of the loop I save (among other things)

scalar b2   = exp(_b[x])	// beta	  

and then put the -scalar- values into a variable in a dataset where I collect the results from the 1000 simulated datasets. For example

quietly replace b2=scalar(b1) in `i'

That works fine. Now I want to calculate "hig" (in the bottom of the loop) and save it in the dataset with aggregated data (where w1, w2, w3 are -scalars-).

scalar hig = 1  if (w1 > w2) & (w1 > w3)		  
scalar hig = 2  if (w2 > w1) & (w2 > w3)		  
scalar hig = 3  if (w3 > w1) & (w3 > w1)	

However, -if- is not allowed in combination with  -scalar-.

Anyone know a better solution for this.
