Replace the for loop line with

Hello, I have a few of the exact same for loops in a program. I was wondering if there is a way change them all at once. In other words, my for loop goes through a list of variables which I am adding to, rather than going to every line where that for loop appears is it possible to change it once in ...

PCA in Stata

Hi,

I'm trying to replicate a principal component indicator that was created in Stata using the "pca" command but even though I'm using the same source data I get a slightly different PCA series. Any idea why that might be?

Thanks.

naming samples in a program

This is only a a minor annoyance but when I re-run a program that contains a sample I created, the program stops saying that sample already exists. Is there a way around that other than commenting out the sample creation line?

Thanks

question on sample selection

Hi, I'd like to analyse properties of the first month of each quarter in a data series. I'm thinking I should just create a new series with NA's for all other months but I'm wondering what is a faster way to create the sample than this smpl 2000:01 2000:01 2000:04 2000:04 etc etc Thanks!

Re: Programming a table

Here's another table question.

I was hoping to have the first column in my table be the names in my for string. But if I put {%string} in brackets to tell the table to read it It just displays {%string}. Is there a workaround for this?
