Hi Nick, 

Really appreciate your response to my question. You are absolute right at
suggesting me reading Statlist FAQ before posting messages. I also change
Microsoft settings and hope the winmail.dat problem is fixed. 

I checked again following your suggestion.I found out that I was using
'regress Y x1, cluster(ID)'. The option of cluster gives me the trouble.

Thanks again for your help. This is my first time using "set trace on"; and
it is quite useful.

Alice

The rule about winmail.dat files is explained 
in the Statalist FAQ, which all, novices or 
not, should read carefully before posting to 
Statalist. A Google on winmail.dat will
prove enlightening.

It is possible, although unlikely, that 
your predict.ado file is corrupt. 

You need to do something like this: 

. use auto
. set trace on 
. regress mpg weight 
. predict rs, rstudent 

and see where the error message you get
is produced.
