Raffaele may want something like this: --------------------------------------------------- egen Y=rowtotal(var1 var 2...var100) ---------------------------------------------------- If all the variables to be summed up via -rowtotal- have the same prefix (i.e., var), Raffaele can make it simpler with a wildcard (i.e., asterisk): -------------------------------- egen Y=rowtotal(var*) ---------------------------- Kind regards, Carlo -----Messaggio originale----- Da: owner-statalist@hsphsun2.harvard.edu [mailto:owner-statalist@hsphsun2.harvard.edu] Per conto di Raffaele Palladino Inviato: martedì 17 dicembre 2013 14:19 A: statalist@hsphsun2.harvard.edu Oggetto: st: need to sum several variables in a row Dear statalist, Im dealing with a problem that will be very easy for most of you but somehow the program keeps sending me error messages! I have to calculate a new variable that is the total amount of money from several variables, all displaied in a row. Rather than using the g = var1+var2 etc... which could be annoying considering the amount of variables and the fact that I have to repeat this command several times I was trying to look on internet for a solution. From this statalist I found users who suggested to use the command rowtotal but apparently I can`t use it on stata 11, my version. Is it correct? It keeps saying "unknow function rowtotal ()" Could you please indicate me the right command to use? many thanks * * For searches and help try: * http://www.stata.com/help.cgi?search * http://www.stata.com/support/faqs/resources/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/faqs/resources/statalist-faq/ * http://www.ats.ucla.edu/stat/stata/
