Throwing in an "ENTER" at the end of the do-file did the trick. Thank you very much.

Hi Christopher,

I believe that Stata does not process the last line of a do file, so
if the gen diriscore command is the last line of the file, it will not
be run.  The file with just the gen diriscore command in it is
probably not working for the same reason.  A solution is to add a
carriage return after the end of the gen diriscore command.
