Dear Stata list,

I was trying to open a do file in STATA 8 and got a message saying that the file is larger than 32000 bytes. I did not know such a limit existed as the same file opens perfectly well in STATA 9.

Apart from splitting the do file, is there any other solution such as trying to increase the file size to the maximum available in STATA 8? If so, what is it?

Thank you.

Regards,

Gauri Khanna

not to mention the use of the logical == instead of the assignment
operator = (double equal sign vs single equal sign)

Sounds like you want | (or) instead of & (and)...

gen newvariable = var1 + var2 + var3 if dum1==1|dum2==1|dum3==1

Dear Stata list,

I have a seemingly simple problem that I can't seem to figure out.

1) I would like to generate a new variable :

generate newvariable=var1+var2+var3 if dum1=1 and or dum2=1 and or
dum3=1

In essence I want to sum across var2, var3 and var4 for a case where
either of the three dummies are equal to 1.

2) If instead I did the following....

generate
newvariable=var1+var2+vhttp://by112fd.bay112.hotmail.msn.com/cgi-bin/com
pose?&curmbox=00000000%2d0000%2d0000%2d0000%2d000000000001&a=8e97f2d6d33
d18578baf68a0a3ed45387544cbaa5b179c9e4483d1f9e6d16955#
Sendar3 if dum1=1 & dum2=1 & dum3=1

.... I would only capture values for var1, var2 and var3 if ALL the
three dummies simultaneously are 1. is this correct? If so I do not
want this.

Thank you.

Regards,

Gauri
