Thanks, Scott. The code works and it's exactly what I had wanted. Oliver, your codes look reasonable to me too but when I run them, only the first obs is filled in with values for the two newly-generated variables. I will try to figure it out. Joerg, yes, my weight variables are sorted for each obs, but your codes are illuminating and I learned from them too. Guys, thanks for all your help! Kind regards, Daifeng On Wed, Jul 13, 2011 at 2:56 PM, Scott Merryman <scott.merryman@gmail.com> wrote: > Like this? > > clear > input v1 v2 v3 v4 v5 v6 v7 > .96 .04 .0 0 0 0 0 > .5 .3 .1 .03 .03 .03 0.01 > .4 .2 .2 .15 .03 0.015 .002 > .3 .3 .37 .03 0 0 0 > .9 .08 .02 0 0 0 0 > end > > gen sum = 0 > gen var_count = 1 > qui { > forv i = 1/7 { > replace sum = sum + v`i' if sum <.95 > replace var_count = var_count + 1 if sum <.95 > } > } > > l > > Scott > * > * For searches and help try: > * http://www.stata.com/help.cgi?search > * http://www.stata.com/support/statalist/faq > * http://www.ats.ucla.edu/stat/stata/ > * * For searches and help try: * http://www.stata.com/help.cgi?search * http://www.stata.com/support/statalist/faq * http://www.ats.ucla.edu/stat/stata/
