What do you mean by "open"?
I mean using Stata's do-file editor to open the existing do-file, as I've done before using v9.

In further persevering, I've noticed that shorter do-files can be opened, although much more slowly than they would in v9.

At 3466 lines each line may be no more than 39 characters to fit into
the limit of 135600 is this the case?
There are:
	3466 lines
	131,261 characters, not counting spaces
	150,888 characters, counting spaces


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?

There are no control characters.
I'm upgrading from Mac 9.2 to Mac 10.



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

 Thanks Sergiy. Stata says nothing; the problem, specifically is that when I
 attempt to open the do-file, v10 Stata (fully updated) crashes (stops
 running, freezes, won't respond...) There are 3466 lines, so perhaps even
 approaching the limit of 3500 lines which you cite is the problem?

 So what is the problem then? Cut-and-paste into an open do file (which
 you say works), then remove extra parts and save from Stata.
 do files are text files, there is no such thing as "v10 do-file".

 If your .do-file defines a program - mind the limit of 3500 lines,
 135600 characters in a program.
 What exactly does not work:
   do file.do
   run file.do
   doedit file.do
   view file.do
 ??????????

 It worked with Stata 9.2. Does it work now with Stata 9.2? What does Stata
 say?

  Thanks Nick, yes it did work with 9.2. The code can also run if I
  cut-and-paste into an open v10 do-file. The problem is that I simply
 can't
  open the do-file from within v10.

  I take it you mean that the _length_ of the do file is the problem. I
  very much doubt it. Did it work with your previous version? I suggest
  working with increasing subsets of the file, or keeping a trace or log
  if possible.

  I've just upgraded to v10, and a do-file won't load, causing
  Stata to crash. There are ~3,000 lines of code in the do-file; could
  that be the problem?
