I have recently found a problem in  stata v7 . I have been using the rndbin
program extensively in some simulations I am running.

I would like to be able to replicate  my results and find that the seed
command does not seem to work; I keep getting different results.

e.g. a simple example should illustrate my problem. the following three
lines of stata will generate and show me an appropriate random number but
repeating the three commands then gives me a different number. I want it to
give me the same number. 

set seed 2
rndbin 1 0.33  6
display   xb

Can someone show me how to run the rndin command more than once and get the
same result each time.
