Sounds to me like it is exactly the same problem again

C:\Documents and Settings\foo.dta

is being interpreted as three files:

C:\Documents.dta
and.dta
Settings\foo.dta

which -dsconcat- is trying to concatenate, but they don't exist. Try

dsconcat "`file1'" "`file2'" etc

. dsconcat `file1' `file2' `file3' `file4' `file5' `file6' `file7'
file C:\Documents.dta not found
r(601);
