Subject   st: Grouping income variables- RECODE COMMAND

Dear Stata users,

I have to group the income variable in different intervals. In the original
dataset, the household income variable is grouped
İnto 12 categories

J <40
R [40,70]
C [70, 120]
M [120, 230]
F [230, 350]
S
K
P
D
 H
 U [1730, 2310)
N > 2310

I want to group J and R categories <70 Euros, and create dummy variables for
all income groups. That is the Stata ouput. I used the recode command
But it does not work 

gen hinc_gr=recode(hinctnt, 70, 120, 230, 350, 460, 580, 690, 1150, 1730,
2310)
(13282 missing values generated)

. tab hinc_gr

    hinc_gr |      Freq.     Percent        Cum.
------------+-----------------------------------
         70 |     29,718      100.00      100.00
------------+-----------------------------------
      Total |     29,718      100.00

Regards

Antonio
