Subject   st: Sample question -- can't replicate my results from my laptop to desktop eventhough I set seed

Dear All,
Apologies if this is asked before -- I read through 10 pages of sampe related questions and couldn't find it. 

I drew a sample on my laptop using the following commands:

set seed  123456789
preserve
keep if iconst==1  /*sampling only construction sites*/
sample 30, count

I run my code on my desktop and I am getting different sites selected.

Any advice how to replicate it?
Thank you in advance.
Sincerely,
Anna
