In addition to other suggestions, note that 
this is an FAQ (meaning, not that this is an 
especially frequently asked question but that there is 
a FAQ on the internet): 

FAQ     . . . . . .  Dealing with reports of repeated time values within panel
        12/05   How do I deal with a report of repeated time values
                within panel?
                http://www.stata.com/support/faqs/data/repeatedtime.html

There are of the order of 300 FAQs on the Stata website -- that could 
be a whole book of FAQs ! -- and many more at UCLA. 

Both sets are matched by entries in the .key files that the Stata 
command -search- interrogates. Thus, 

. search panel repeated 

points to the FAQ is question. You could also specify 
FAQ: 

. search panel repeated, faq
