Adding the ; did not fix the problem.

My log file now looks like this ...

delimiter now ;
. forvalues Y = 84 86 {;
  2. log using make`Y'.log, text replace;
  3. global yr `Y';
  4. do read`Y';
  5. do lbl`Y';
  6. do common;
  7. gen index=_n;
  8. label var index "Record number";
  9. gen int panelyr=1900 + `Y';
 10. replace panelyr=2000 + `Y' if `Y'<=3;
 11. label var panelyr "SIPP Survey Year";
 12. compress;
 13. aorder;
 14. order panelyr wave index;
 15.  save sipp`Y'.dta,replace;
 16. do month;
 17. save sipp`Y'm.dta,replace;
 18. log close;
 19. };
invalid syntax
r(198);

end of do-file
r(198);
