Hi everybody,

I'm new to Stata so please excuse if this question isn't the greatest:

I want to seperate a text (string) across several variables. In each variable (household_history_1 up to household_history_100) there's a semicolon. So I thought of:

.foreach household_history_* {
.split household_history_*, p(";")
.}

unfortunately Stata says "too many variables specified". Maybe the approach is entirely wrong. I'd be very thankful for any comments!

Thanks
Ben Ammar
