Stata's message r(100) stands for invalid syntax. drop if ==. causes
error message r(198) "nothing found where name expected". Does the
error occur in this particular line, or does it occur elsewhere in
your program, when you add this line?

(this is one of those cases when I wish to see a message "error in
line NNN of file foobar.do")

Regards, Sergiy
