Dear StataList Members:

I can not find the answer to the problem of "Stata drops variables in the
dataset" in the on-line resources. Maybe it is too basic to you fellow
members. I find it is different from "Why do estimation commands sometimes
drop variables?" in http://www.stata.com/support/faqs/stat/drop.html.

I run a estimation command with some different options. After the first time
of running the command, Stata randomly drops variable in the dataset. I then
have to exit and re-enter to run the command again. An example is below. It
happens frequently.

Could any colleague kindly point out the place where I can find the remedy
measures?

Thanks for your abundant knowledge and experience in advance!

Can Huang
