I have an id for my firms(145) but I need to investigate the fix effect of firms on my response variable. In stata, I use i. variablename and I get what I want. I don't want to create 144 dummy variables. Anybody knows what is the way around this? Appreciate it.

It depends partly on the procedure you're using. Some allow for CLASS variables, which then create the dummy variables.
Otherwise you need to create them.
Here's a post and a reference to Ricks blog that goes over ways to create the dummy variables.
