In addition, this looks like a -contract- problem.

Your code looks fine to me. How about updating to version 8.2 and trying

I am trying to calculate household size using collapse. The dataset has two variables, a unique household ID <uhhid> and the serial numbers of the >household members <hhmem>.
This is the code I used and the error I get.

. /*create variable household size*/
. use rindvar02, clear

. keep uhhid hhmem

. sort uhhid hhmem

. gen num=1

. collapse (sum) hhsize=num, by(uhhid)
invalid syntax
r(198);
