Alison,

Have you tried -duplicates list-?  This is probably not as helpful as you would like, but it's a start.  I have had similar wishes for the -duplicate- command.  If there are no ideas forthcoming in response to your question, perhaps it is time to write an enhancement of the -duplicates- command.

Dear Statalisters,

I am working to identify duplicates within a very messy dataset and would love to be able to identify among those observations which have the same values for a set of variables (that I define) what are the variables where their values differ (how are they not true duplicates).

Does anyone have any ideas about this?
Thanks so much,
Alison
