Rachel--
You might be missing a carriage return, line feed, or some combination
of these at the end of your do file.  Try putting in one more
extraneous command (e.g. -ds-), or hit Enter a few times, at the end
of the file.

I have a do file with the following nested loop structure

forvalues num=1/3 {
foreach suf in AA BB CC {
gen phonepref`num'`suf' = phone`suf' * pref`num'`suf'
       }
}

When I run the do file, it gives me an "unexpected end" error and, in
printing out the for loop, doesn't see the last curly bracket.  On the
other hand, it works fine when I paste it into the command box.

Does anyone know where the problem is?

Thanks,
Rachel
