Although I'm online, I'm unable to hook up to any of Stata's toy
datasets to run your code on your problem at the moment:

. webuse wp1, clear
file http://www.stata-press.com/data/r9/wp1.dta not found
server says file temporarily redirected to
http://www.stata-press.com/error/404.html
r(601);

That'll no doubt correct itself in time. Nevertheless, this -arima-
call works with my data. Are you sure you're using an up-to-date
Stata?

Please note that posting under aliases to Statalist is a rather
rubbish idea. Ta.
