Kit,

Thanks for the reply.  Please forgive my ignorance but I am unsure how
to follow your advice.  My Stata programming experience only recently
extended to successfully calling a do file from another do with
arguments, etc.  Is creating a function simply creating an ado file?
If not, is there anywhere in the manuals that I might find an example?

I am trying to constrain what appears in the results window to just the printf statements the mata portion of my stata program produces and have used the quietly command in a do file that is repeatedly called by another do file to suppress the remainder of the program. Yet I cannot figure out how to hide the actual mata code that writes the output I need to see.
