What do you mean by "open"? It is not at all obvious. Don't open do
files via File-->Open ! This is for datasets.
If you want to execute, launch, run your .do file use File-> do, or
better yet type a command do "Filename.do"
If you want to see/view/edit/modify the source code type doedit "Filename.do"

At 3466 lines each line may be no more than 39 characters to fit into
the limit of 135600 is this the case?
Check for unprintable control characters (codes < Ascii 32, and/or
Ascii>127) Are there any? Are you relocating from linux to Windows or
the other way around?

Get the Stata 9 binary from Stata website and try if the do file works
in Stata 9.
