Hi Anuth,

In answer to your questions:
1) You don't want to use v404, as that only applies to the last birth, and you might have more than one birth in the last 2 years (in which case v404 does not apply to that birth even though it is set for the woman). You need to use m4 which applies to each birth individually. V404 is a woman level variable and has the same value for all children. M4 is a child level variable and has a different value for each child.

2) Generating the column variable means creating a variable for each of the categories used in the table. The footnote to the tables in the report explain how each of the categories is constructed.
