Dear Stata listers,

I am facing a few problems when using the ado files poverty or povdeco. 
When I type return list, I obtain only a partial list, and when I try to retrieve the result by typing
gen x=S_6 for example to store the headcount, an error message is returned 
_s_6 not found

Could someone indicate to me what is it I am doing wrong? Basically, I only want to retrieve the poverty indexes in new variables using poverty. Similarly for povdeco.

The output I obtain is below.

Thanks in advance,

Thi Minh
