Hi all,

I have a do file, wherein I have a few scalars which I am using to expand,
loop , as cutoff limits etc. Is it possible to have the do file 
prompt the user to input the value of the scalar, so that I do not have to
make the changes to the do file.

Suppose I had a do file like

Scalar a=5
Expand a

Can I get stata to prompt the user like 

Enter the value for expansion : 
that input then gets stored as a
The code executes..
