I sort a dataset and save it. When I use the dataset as the using data of a
merge, I am told that it is not sorted.

In particular, I have the following code embedded in a program:

winexec "C:\Program Files\StatTransfer7\st" "$path\bid_product_fix.stc"

use "$path\bid_product_fix.dta", clear
sort product
describe
save "$path\bid_product_fix.dta", replace

use "$path\all_bid.dta"
sort product
merge product using "$path\bid_product_fix.dta"


This is the output:

Contains data from <SNIPPED FULL PATH>\bid_product_fix.dta
  obs:           340                          
 vars:             2                          1 Mar 2004 19:42

Any thoughts would be much appreciated.
