No one answered your previous message and no-one 
has yet answered this one. I guess that the 
reasons are that no-one recognises what 
a "scaling factor score" is. 

In general, official Stata is somewhat leery 
of semi-statistical figures of merit, which 
is what I guess this beast to be. 

If you provide a precise definition, one or
more things may become clearer: 

1. No one has yet programmed this. 

2. It has been programmed, under a different
name. 

3. It can be calculated readily: you 
just need to write some code to do it.
