Dear all.

If I type

postfile myfile [list of statistics names] using test.dta, replace double every(1)
local i=1
while `i'<=100 {
...
do stuff
...
post myfile [list of statistics]
local i=`i'+1
}
postclose myfile

Stata will in fact post the new results to the file test.dta every 2 iterations: 2 rows of data at the end of the third iteration, 2 more at the end of the fifth, and so on

Is there a way to force Stata to post results at every iteration of a loop, as specified by the -every(#)- option?

Thaks in advance,
Best,
Antoine.
