Hello,
I have a much larger dataset that is similar in form to:  year species length count

 1998       1    150     1
 1998       2    200     1
 1998       3    250     2
 1999       1    150     3
 1999       2    200     4
 1999       3    250     5
 2000       1    150     1
 2000       2    200     1
 2000       3    250     1
 2001       1    150     2
 2001       2    200     3
 2001       3    250     1
 2002       1    150     1
 2002       2    200     2
 2002       3    250     3

What I want is to have a line of data for each year x species x length group combination
I would like the ouput to be:

Year species length count

1998       1    150     1
1998       2    200     1
1998       3    250     1
1998       3    250     1
1999       1    150     1
1999       1    150     1
1999       1    150     1
1999       2    200     1

Can anyone help me with a for statement of a function that can accomplish this?
Thanks
