This question refer to the -sq- package for sequence analysis available with
-ssc install sq-.
What you report seems odd. The error message you mentioned is neither coded
into -sqom-, nor into -sqset-. Error messages like those you mention here are
typical for the -sqstat- commands (sqstattab1, sqstattab2, sqstattabsum,
For now, the only explanation I have has to do with the delimiter. It seems
