Scott--
I suspect this has nothing to do with limitations of Stata, but in the
way you have specified delimiters or inserted comments in your do-file
(it's not quite clear from your example).  The '>' in the Stata output
indicates the line of code has not been terminated.  When you separate
commands into separate files, it probably indirectly resolves your
delimiter, comment, or open quote issues.

At some point, if I have too many of these repeated commands, the do
file will not execute subsequent regression commands.  It appears to
be commented out by Stata itself, and so output simply is shown, but
not executed - always preceded by an '>' in the Stata output.  If I
cut and paste these into a separate do file, and run them, then it
executes fine.  Is there a limit to how many regressions and -estout-
commands one can do in a single -do- file?
