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
