No. -ds- was revised within the lifetime of Stata 8. 

You -- on Stata 9.2
===================

Open the help for -whatsnew8-. Scroll to the update information for
17jun2003. The answer is there: 

-----------------------------------
2.  ds has new options that allow you to list variables that match
certain criteria.
    The resulting list is returned in r(varlist), which can then be used
in a
    subsequent command.  The new options for ds are not, has(), not(),
insensitive,
    detail, and indent().  See help ds for details.
-----------------------------------

Your colleague -- on Stata 8
=============================

Your colleague has not -update-d their Stata 8. If he or she types 

. update query 

that should be apparent.

I use Stata 9.2 in which there is no problem with the command
- ds, has(type string) -
Stata 8, which is used by a colleague, does not seem to recognize the
-has- command:

. ds, has(type string)
option has() not allowed
r(198);

Is -has- novel in Stata9?
