The -capture- or -confirm- commands, or the -nostop- option on the -run-

I noticed that the Stata program will automatically stop when the
dataset is empty after deleting the missing value and give out the wrong
information: __0000001 not found.
In my program, I need to run many programs on the same dataset,
so I open the original dataset many times in a big program. Every time I
drop some variables and observations, the whole program is stoped if one
of the dataset after selection is empty.
I wonder if there is some command which can force the program to
go on even if the dataset is empty in this subprogram after selection.
