Hi folks,

Just reinstalled and updated Stata on new computer.  Typed:

mmerge country using trustdata

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------
merge specs          |
       matching type | auto
  mv's on match vars | none
  unmatched obs from | both
---------------------+---------------------------------------------------------
  master        file | compdata.dta
                 obs |    101
                vars |   1928
          match vars | country  (key)
 
-------------------+---------------------------------------------------------
  using         file | trustdata.dta
                 obs |    101
                vars |      4
          match vars | country  (key)
 
-------------------+---------------------------------------------------------
         common vars | trust90
---------------------+---------------------------------------------------------

and got:

unrecognized command:  merge
r(199);

which was strange since "country" is in both data sets.

Then I replaced mmerge on SSC (not really needed since it just
reinstalled what I had) and it still didn't work.  So I typed:

merge country using trustdata
unrecognized command:  merge

Any suggestions?  Many thanks,
