(sent this yesterday, but still haven't received it back so trying one more time)

Just an FYI - seems the more I use Stata, the more I'm compressing my code. The following, independent of the actual command used, crashes my Stata every time (using Stata 7.0SE in Win2000 - causes Stata to end, no error message in results).

Feel free to tell me why so I don't assume such things will work in the future, but thought I'd share.

Kaleb...


forvalues i =1/3 {forvalues j=1/3 {replace badcode = badcode + "h`i'_`j'" if hrec`i'_`j'chk>0 } }

I do know it works for one loop on one line, and this also works fine in a do file written as:

forvalues i =1/3 {
forvalues j=1/3 {
replace badcode = badcode + "h`i'_`j'" if hrec`i'_`j'chk>0
}
}
