Note that you can -capture- and subsequently still assess whether an error has occurred:

******
sysuse auto, clear
capture drop maker
di in red _rc
******

Hello, guys. I don't have this problem right now but have always wanted to
ask this. Is there a way to tell Stata to continue running a do file even
if *SOME* of the commands would give an "error"?

I know that in general I could use -do myfile, nostop- and then Stata
won't stop at all if it finds an error. But I don't like this because I'd
actually like it to stop if there's an actual error... but if I say
something like -drop x- and x doesn't exist, I don't really think of it as
an error, so I'd like it to keep going ONLY IN THIS CASE.

Is there something that would make this happen? Or am I asking for too
much here?

Thanks a lot.
Adrian
