I'll add a quick point: often your problem is in the midst of a long .do or .ado, and your dataset it huge. But usually you can isolate the bit of code, and generate a tiny example of the data, in order to post your question.

Doing so has two advantages: first, you may discover the solution in the course of translative/isolating, and second, people are far more inclined to explore problems that don't require searching through tons of code or dealing with unfamiliar data.

Quite so. This is the positive side
to my mail: To share files with others
you can

ask Kit Baum to put them on SSC,

put them up on any other website to which
you have access,

submit them to the Stata Journal
for publication,

and in the case of relatively simple
.do or .ado files you can copy and
paste the contents into a posting.
