Ok thanks for all the comments...
with the -capture block the do-file is running,
BUT
is actually producing no output after the first error.
This is the part of my do-file (to make it more quick only until Number 3)

capture {
forvalues k=1/3{
if `k' < 100 local k 0`k'
if `k' < 10 local k 0`k'
 forvalues year=2/7 {
 svyset [pw=Q1170_0`year']
 svy: tab Q0`k'_0`year'
mat Q0`k'_0`year' = (e(Prop)\e(total))
}
}
}

The first error occurs after the first run of the second forvalues
(forvalues year=2/7 {) loop (number 3).
With the capture block, the do-file is working, but the mat command
only produces a matrix until the first error (a matrix only for year
=2). Thus, I assume, that it is not working totally.

With adding -noisily the do file stops when the first error occurs.
Best
Daniel
