Thanks Neil. The missing bracket was a typo. Yes I had used 
 
.ge ratioprtwrk=(zmalprt+zfemprt) / (zmalfull+zfemfull)
 
Thanks for confirming.

Two problems
1. Its missing an opening bracket.
2.There is no need to use -egen- (see -man egen- for details of what egen does).
gen ratioprtwrk=(zmalprt+zfemprt) / (zmalfull+zfemfull)
