Hi!

Someone told me that if I split a list by typing /// where I wanted it to
split, then STATA wouldn't give me an error and I would be able to see my
entire list. Somehow this is not working (I'm using version 8). I've shorten
the variable names here. They are much longer in my actual program and
that's why this would be very helpful.

So this is what I have written:

global set2 "statetotgps99 statetotpsychs99 ///
	clin_psychol mh_sa_socwrk ///
	sa_mh_cnslrs"

instead of writing:

global set2 "statetotgps99 statetotpsychs99 clin_psychol mh_sa_socwrk
sa_mh_cnslrs"

Stata is giving me the following error:

.  global set2 "statetotgps99 statetotpsychs99 ///
invalid syntax
r(198);

Can someone tell me why I'm getting this error or if I should be using
something else?

Thanks, Maria
