Dear all,
it might sound trivial but I was not able to find something in the egen
or extended macro function help:

I want to create a new variable that contains the variable name that
holds the minimum value over several other variables per row i.e.
something like the "egen x= rowmin(y z w)" command but the created
variable should not contain the row minimum but the variable name that
contains this minimum.

I hope the description is clear and somebody can help!

Thanks in advance
