Folks - I run the -label define- command as shown below, from a do file. I
get the following error.

. run "C:\DOCUME~1\STEPHE~1\LOCALS~1\Temp\STD02000000.tmp"
label already defined
(error occurred while loading Label.ado)
r(110);


I then run -label list-  but nothing come up for injury.

If I run

. label drop injury

I am  then told the value label is not found.


What is the error I am making in my original -label define- command, as
shown below?


Label define injury 81  "nothin" ///

After pasting the code into the Do-file Editor and running it as a do-file
(not as an ado called by your do-file, as your error message indicates), it
runs okay for me once the L at the beggining is converted to lower case.

You might try the following:

1.  add the following as the first line of code in the DO-file

capture label drop injury

2.  put an -exit- at the bottom of the DO-file

For further diagnosis, -do- the do file instead of -run-ning it.  In
addition, you can -set trace on- for further detail about just where the
r(100) is occurring.
