Sorry about the needless anxiety - As Martin suggested, I did have an
old -sep-program lying around that dropped _all. Thanks, Martin

If that is true, it is pretty serious. So I get "unrecognized command:
sep" 
with my 10.1 Stata. Your error "invalid syntax" makes me think you have
a command that I do not have. What does -which sep- tell you?
