I looked up r(9611) in the source code.  It is related to a -while- loop.
To Stata, the contents of a -while- loop are actually a mini program.
That program must be stored in memory so that it can be executed over
and over.  Stata assigns an internal name to the contents of each
-while- loop so that it can look that 'program' up later to execute it.

r(9611) only occurs if Stata is unable to look up the -while- 'program'
that it thinks it just read in from an ado-file.  Given that Edward
believes he has an unmatched brace in his code, I suspect that this
is what is causing the problem.

Edward can use the brace-matching feature of an editor like
Stata's Do-file Editor or vi to help find the missing brace.
