Dear All,

 Actually, the first I am running a SUR model using time- series dataset
from 1958-2000 as follows in the following , then I am trying to append
some extra observation from 2001-2050 to my master data set in Stata
memory by append command as it is in the following .do file.

version 8.2
set more off
capture log close
log using c:\data\outofsample_scg.log, replace

*loading data set

insheet using c:\data\US_SCG.txt

  rename v1 yr

 * generating  restricted variable costs =labor plus materials costs
   gen vc_sg = vl_sg+vm_sg

 *generating labor and materials shares variables
  gen sl_sg = vl_sg/vc_sg
  gen sm_sg = vm_sg/vc_sg

 *time variable identification
  tsset yr

*generating ln of variables in cost model

gen lvc_sg = ln(vc_sg)

gen lq_sg = ln(q_sg)

gen lpl_sg = ln(pl_sg)

gen lpm_sg = ln(pm_sg)

gen lk_sg = ln(k_sg)

gen le_sg = ln(e_sg)

gen lvcq_sg = ln(vc_sg)-ln(q_sg)

gen lple_sg = lpl_sg * le_sg

gen lplk_sg = lpl_sg * lk_sg

gen lpme_sg = lpm_sg * le_sg

gen lpmk_sg = lpm_sg * lk_sg

gen lek_sg  = le_sg * lk_sg

gen lek_neg_sg  = (-1)*le_sg*lk_sg

gen lplt_sg = lpl_sg * t

gen lpmt_sg = lpm_sg * t

gen let_sg = le_sg * t

gen lkt_sg = lk_sg * t

append using "c:\data\US_outofsample_SCG.txt"

But, the problem is that when I running my .do file on Stata 9.2, or 8.2
the erroe message is given as follows in the following:

.....Stata has encountered the problem fo error and needs to closed. Wew
are sorry for any inconvenience......

This error message and problem happens when Stata tries to run "Append"

When I am trying to report this problem by clicking on "send error" or
"don`t send error" button, everything is closed including Stata and my .do

Could anybody please help me out on this matter?

Thank you
