Hi all,

 

I have a dataset that has a variable "start" and a variable "end" with count data representing an interval. I want to convert that data to be 1 row per count rather than by interval, like this:

 

Subject  start  end  var

1             1       3       x

1             4       5       y

2             1       5       z

 

To look like this:

 

Subject  count  var

1             1        x

1             2        x

1             3        x

1             4        y

1             5        y

2             1        z

2             2        z

...

 

I dont know how to manipulate the array code to reference these variables instead of doing from i=1 to x. Any help is appreciated. Thank you..
