Hi all,

I am trying to destring the var name -month- using the following command but the response was "january not found." Was it due to error in writing the command or because all months (JANUARY to DECEMBER) were entered in UPPERCASE letter?


gen month2=0
replace month2=1 if (month2==january)
-january not found-


Aminu
