Daniel, First, you don't say which error you encounter. Please elaborate. Second, you can include a -di- command in your loop to check if the values of k are the values you need. capture { forvalues k=1/3 { if `k' < 100 local k 0`k' if `k' < 10 local k 0`k' di "k = `k'" etc. Friedrich On Wed, Nov 19, 2008 at 12:57 PM, Daniel Schultz <schultzd@tcd.ie> wrote: > 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).
