Dr. Grote was kind enough to send his data to Stata Technical Services so
that we could track down the problem he was having with the -recode-
command.  It turns out that the reason he was receiving the error "__000000
already defined" was because his dataset already contained a variable named
__000000.  This variable was most likely a tempvar he created that was
accidentally or inadvertently saved to his dataset.



The second error he was receiving was due to a missing comma before
the -generate()- option of -recode-.  For example,



. clear



. set obs 26
obs was 0, now 26



. gen alter_j = int(uniform()*16 + 1)



. recode alter_j (min/1=1 "0-1 Jahr") gen(alter_cat2) label(alter_cat2)
Value label not allowed
r(198);



. recode alter_j (min/1=1 "0-1 Jahr"), gen(alter_cat2) label(alter_cat2)
(0 differences between alter_j and alter_cat2)
