IMHO, the best way is probably to use a different editor (eg PFE or
TextPad) for editing Stata do-files.
Stata do-file-editor is limited to a maximum number of characters (32
000). Is it possible (how?) to change this setting?
In my system, the .do extension is associated with TextPad, so that, if I
click on a Stata do-file, then it is not run, but it is opened in TextPad.
I can then launch Stata from inside TextPad, using the Tools menu provided
by TextPad. In the past, I have done the same with PFE, which is nearly as
good as TextPad, and which is free.
For information on the various alternative editors to use with Stata
do-files, Peter might like to refer to the Web page on this subject at
I hope this helps.
