What do you mean by "open"?

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.

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? MichaelSo 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? Sergiy On Tue, Nov 4, 2008 at 2:16 PM, Michael McCulloch <mm@pinest.org> wrote: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. Nick n.j.cox@durham.ac.uk. Michael McCulloch 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? * * For searches and help try: * http://www.stata.com/help.cgi?search * http://www.stata.com/support/statalist/faq * http://www.ats.ucla.edu/stat/stata/* * For searches and help try: * http://www.stata.com/help.cgi?search * http://www.stata.com/support/statalist/faq * http://www.ats.ucla.edu/stat/stata/* * For searches and help try: * http://www.stata.com/help.cgi?search * http://www.stata.com/support/statalist/faq * http://www.ats.ucla.edu/stat/stata/* * For searches and help try: * http://www.stata.com/help.cgi?search * http://www.stata.com/support/statalist/faq * http://www.ats.ucla.edu/stat/stata/
