There have been many comments as to the origin of the second error. My
suspicion is that the first is caused by the tokenization/syntax of the
arguments in your original command.

Hi this is a bit of a programme that I am writing. Can anyone spot why it
does not work? The scalar commands do not appear to work. I get the
following error "= invalid name" and "unrecognized command:  scalar__0000OP"
when I run the programme. Any help is greatly appreciated.

  tempname catnum degreef obs
  tempvar scoreqq scor_uqq scor_nqq diffqq1

  noisily oprobit `*' `if' [`weight'`exp']

  scalar `catnum'=e(k_cat)
  scalar`degreef'=e(df_m)
  scalar `obs' = e(N)

  predict `scoreqq' `if', xb
  ge `scor_uqq' = `scoreqq'
  replace `scor_uqq' =. if `1'==.
  ge `scor_nqq' = `scor_uqq'
  replace `scor_nqq' = `scor_uqq' - _b[`2'] if `2'==1
  replace `scor_uqq' = `scor_nqq' + _b[`2'] if `2'==0

  ge `diffqq1' = normprob(_b[_cut1]-`scor_uqq') -
normprob(_b[_cut1]-`scor_nqq')  if `1'~=.
