st: ice problem: return code 2000
I am having a problem getting the ice multiple imputation command to run. I have used it many times and it has worked without a problem. Today is a different story:
I am using the command structure:
ice x1 x2 x3 x4 x5 using "M:\statafiles\data\imputed.dta", seed(2007) m(5)
After a few minutes of "thinking" Stata provides the response:
I looked up the meaning of this error and it reads:
error . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . Return code 2000
You have requested some statistical calculation and there are
no observations on which to perform it. Perhaps you specified
if exp or in range and inadvertently filtered all the data.
I am not sure exactly what that means with respect to my data file. The file that I am using has valid values for the variables in the list (x1...x5) and all the missing values are listed with a period "."
Does anyone have any idea why I am getting this message and what needs to be done to rectify this?
