As the FAQ advises, 

"The current version of Stata is 9. Please specify if you are using 
an earlier version; otherwise, the answer to your question is likely 
to refer to commands or features unavailable to you." 

Otherwise put, my comment is based on the current version, as is
standard procedure.
