Hi Veeresh,

I'm sure other Stata users will suggest better solutions. However, it is simple to convert to lower case for one or more vars. For example, I just wrote the following loop in which title is the string variable(s):

local title title
foreach var of varlist title{
gen title1=lower(`var')
}

Hope this helps,

Hi

I am looking if i can make a strmatch for strings so that it can be
case insensitive. I don't want to use the upper or lower case
conversion as it appears to be tedious. Is there a way out for case
insensitive strings?

Thanks
Veeresh
