One approach is to upgrade to Stata/SE, whose -tabulate- command can handle up to 12,000 rows. So you could doabove). My problem is that I -tab1- a variable but there are too many values for it to run the frequency distribution. I could use by, but that could get very tedious with counting, and could be prone to error when I add up across the by variable. I expect there to be something on the order of 3700 values, but I have to check to be sure.

. quietly tab x

and then grab r(r)

If the values are all integers, then the command -levels- (available from SSC) might do the trick for you.

Or, from first principles:

. bysort x: gen count = (_n==1)

. replace count = sum(count)

. sum count

and grab r(max)
