Some time ago I wrote a program to estimate counterfactual wage densities
using Stata 5.  The program worked fine but when Stata 6 came out the same
program would no longer run. Instead at certain points in the program I
would get error messages like "_00005Q not found". It was not obvious to me
at the time what had changed so my solution then was to continue using
Stata 5 for this program but Stata 6 for everything else. I now use Stata 8
but continue to use Stata 5 for this earlier analysis. After a couple of
years I've finally decided its probably time to sort this out. Any ideas as
to why the original program did not transfer from version 5 to 6 (or 7 or
8) would be appreciated. The program itself is quite long but the error
message seems to be occurring with simple "generate" or "replace" commands.

All the best,
Donal
