st: xi command deletes variables without warning
I have a panel data set with about 20 variables and less than 700 observations. I used the following command in STATA9 SE
.xi, noomit i.region i.income
to generate the dummies and it work fine. I saved the file and when I used the command again with the same command for another variable
.xi, noomit i.interval
STATA somehow deleted some of the previously generated dummies.
I used another command with no problem
.qui tab, gen(interval_)
Is there anyone experienced the same problem?
