st: creating unique identifier values

I am entering in some data manually and I would like to be able to quickly insert unique numeric identifiers which represent 26 individual subjects each with 35 attributes.

The values for the individual identifiers look like this: subject 1 with 1-35 attributes = 11,12,13,14,....110,111,112...120,121,122...130,131,132,133,134,135 subject 2 with 1-35 attributes = 21,22,23,24,....210,211,212...220,221,222...230,231,232,233,234,235 subject 3 with 1-35 attributes = 31,32,33,34.....310,311,312...320,321,322...330,331,332,333,334,335

etc. to subject 26 w/ 1-35 attributes...261,262,263

These values will be manually inputted in one column under varname (obs) in ascending order of subject number(s) and attribute number(s).

obs 11 12 13 14 .etc .etc 110 111 112 .etc .etc .etc 21 22 23 24 25 .etc .etc .etc

I'm wondering if there is Stata listmember that could generate these values via Stata coding and would be willing to share that information.

Thank you! Suzy
