Presumably the ambiguity of -end- is the issue here. 

Svend's solution is good and may well be the best for you. 

An alternative is to read the data from a file. Another 
alternative is 

program _entryD 
	version 8 
	clear 
	set obs 2 
	gen x = cond(_n == 1, 1, 4) 
	gen y = cond(_n == 1, 2, 5) 
	gen z = cond(_n == 1, 3, 6)
end 

Naturally the implementation of that approach would be much messier 
if your real example is more complicated than what you give here.

Svend Juul replied to Zhiqiang:

The following simple program doesn't work. There may be several
alternatives to achieve the task. However, I would like to know if there
is any way to add -input- in a program.

----------------
program define _entryD
input	x y z  
	1	2	3
	4	5	6
end
end
-----------------

====================================================================

You can put the input lines in a do-file, and let the ado-file
call the do-file:

-----------------
program define _entryD
do c:\ado\personal\_entryD.do
end
-----------------


-----------------
* c:\ado\personal\_entryD.do
input	x y z  
	1	2	3
	4	5	6
end
-----------------
