I still don't understand what you are trying to do. But I can comment on your code. You are looping round 40,000 times and writing a single result to 40,000 data files. Then you are looping round to put all those 40,000 data files in one. I'd do that directly this way using just one extra file: clear set obs 31 gen a = . tempname out postfile `out' t using myresults.dta qui forval i = 1/40000 { replace a = invnorm(uniform()) ttest a = 0 post `out' (r(t)) } postclose `out' I still doubt 40,000 is anywhere big enough to get an answer. Nick n.j.cox@durham.ac.uk Victor M. Zammit * a} The data that I have is from generating random samples of whatever size,in this case of size 31,from a normally distributed,infinitely large, population; ie local i = 1 while `i'<= 40000 { drop _all set obs 31 gen a = invnorm(uniform()) qui ttest a = 0 replace a = r(t) in 1 keep in 1 save a`i',replace local i = `i'+1 } * I use 40000 due to memory constraint.Appending the a[i]'s together gives me a variable of 40000 observations ,ie use a1,clear local i = 2 while `i'<= 40000 { append using a`i'.dta local i = `i'+1 } save ais40000,replace * b) From ais40000.dta I get the density <= 1.31, presumably to get the density of 90% , <= 1.697 to get the density of 95% etc etc,according to the official ttable, ie capture program drop density program define density use ais40000,clear count if a<= `1' di " density >=" "`1'" " = " r(N)/40000 end density 1.31 density 1.697 density 2.042 density 2.457 density 2.75 * For smaller degrees of freedom,the discrepancy is much higher.I would like to know how if it is at all possible to resolve memory constraint . * * 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/
