Just a reminder to all and sundry, especially 
relatively new members of the list, that the 
Statalist FAQ at 

http://www.stata.com/support/faqs/res/statalist.html

is a source of advice for posters. You are expected
to read this before sending your question to the list. 

One detail being missed by quite a few people is this advice: 

Edit mail so that readers see easily what the issue is 
and what your contribution is. Please do not re-post the 
whole of a very long message together with your 
one-sentence tidbit. Please do not send a message by 
replying to, but not editing out, someone else's message 
on a different topic. Your mailer may have a facility to 
select a block of text and then reply quoting only that text. 

If you want people to give your question full consideration
-- and naturally you do -- please 
give full consideration to their convenience too.
