You've obviously not read the Statalist FAQ on how to ask questions
like this. If you have, then you've not read it closely enough. From
section 3.3:

"Say exactly what you typed and exactly what Stata typed (or did) in
response. N.B. exactly! If you can, reproduce the error with one of
Stata's provided datasets or a simple concocted dataset that you
include in your posting."

And:

"Say what command(s) you are using. If they are not part of official
Stata, say where they come from: the STB/SJ, SSC, or other archives.
For more explanation, see [section] 7. Ado-files FAQ below."

Follow this and we may, or may not, have an answer to your question.

Ta.
