The " sample ado" to which I was referring was from the .help rolling:

webuse lutkepohl2, clear
tsset qtr
rolling mean=r(mean) median=r(p50), window(10): summarize inc, detail
list in 1/10

This cleared all of the variables from the working file and replaced them
with: start end mean median

I don't want to loose the variables in the working file, therefore was
thinking there would be a way to calculate the mean and sd using a command
not unlike .gen or .egen.

Somewhat tangentially, way back in early 2000s you wrote about a .ma
command.  Is that not working anymore?  (the mean I calculated above IS a
moving average.)
