ziad,

i am still using stata 8.2. if my recollection is right, that review window only hold about last 100 commands or so. i don't know whether there is a way to increase it or even that in stata 9.2 there may be no limit, but just to save heartaches later in case you it only store last 100 commands or so, you might want to use (in case you don't already know) -cmdlog- command at the beginning of your every stata session to save your commands. i always do both -cmdlog- & -log- (i think these commands should still be the same in stata 9.2) at the beginning of all my stata sessions. ok, maybe you are only doing a few lines in which right-click save on the review window should be ok. just a thought.

regards,
bw


cmdlog = so that i can quickly reproduce (as a do-file) what i did on that particular session or day (trust me, human memory and recall is fallible!)

log = so that you have a diary of your analyses
