I am pleased that you solved your problem. 

Please note for future postings that a report of 
"not working" is not itself informative. Usually, all
we can suggest is that you were doing something wrong, 
which you knew already. 

The FAQ advises 

"Say exactly what you typed and exactly what Stata typed 
(or did) in response. N.B. exactly! If you can, reproduce 
the error with one of Stata's provided datasets or a simple 
concocted dataset that you include in your posting."
