say program define count6 do not say `i'=1/6, but i=1/6; refer to i inside the prog as `i'... Zitat von "Solorzano, Jenniffer" <jenniffers@IADB.ORG>:

Hi, I don't know what is happening with my stata version. I'm trying to run this simple program.... . program count6 1. forvalues `i'=1/6 { 2. display `i' 3. } 4. end . count6 _= invalid name r(198); And that error appears from nothing, somebody can help me?

It works well. I did exactly as you suggested. Thanks! Mandy John-Paul Ferguson wrote:Dear Mandy, I think that trying to manipulate j within the "if" statement on yourfourthline is causing the problem. If you first create another local macrothat'sequal to that value and include it, the loop should work correctly. Seebelow:local j 0802 forvalue i=1/8 { g age`i'=2006-T099`j' local k = `j'-1 replace age`i'=2006-T099`j'-1 if T099`k' > 5 local j = `j' + 500 } I am assuming that the first "T099`j'-1" in the "replace" line is supposed to be the value of T099`j' minus 1, not the value of T099`k' as defined here.Adjustaccordingly.
