I have come across a wrong error message.

The variable -novar- does not exist.

. duplicates drop patkey date if novar !=.,force
varlist not allowed
r(101);

. duplicates drop patkey date if date != .,force

Duplicates in terms of patkey date

(38 observations deleted)

I suspect that -novar- is passed as a macro and generates this message
because it is missing.

It took a while to figure all of this out. So fixing the message might
be of help to others.
