Again, you do not want ologit. There are many possible models possible
for an ordered dependent variable, ordered logistic regression is just
one of them. -ologit- does not apply in your case. The alternative
model you propose, with multiple records per observation, sounds like
-clogit- to me. See -help clogit-.
