That is my problem..Because I don't know when the observations within a day are not the same..For using RESHAPE the ndays must be integer..
I cannot look over 900,000rows(dates and prices) for each day to see if there are 79 observations or less.

That way I want something to take me for each day only the prices coressponding to that day..

Thank you,
