I have a table T
Date City Visitors
----------------------
1/1/2020 New York 10
1/2/2020 New York 20
I want to add a variable 'state' that looks like
Date City Visitors State
----------------------
1/1/2020 New York 10 NY
1/2/2020 New York 20 NY
I did
state=strings(height(T),1)
then
state(:) = 'NY'
then I create a table and merged. But is there a simpler way?

But then you have to substiute a value 'state'?
