Actually, I wonder if the problem is that the version of Stata 10 is 
not up to date.  Bill Gould promised us a while back that -index- 
would quietly come back to life (albeit undocumented), and it appears 
that that is what has happened:

. sysuse auto
(1978 Automobile Data)

. gen x = index(make, "a")

. sum x

     Variable |       Obs        Mean    Std. Dev.       Min        Max
-------------+--------------------------------------------------------
            x |        74    5.432432    4.783193          0         16
