OK,

here is the surrounding results to running with set trace on:

 CalledPooledModel "1143" "1148" 10 100 0 reg FYR L.FYR L(0/1).DSFinR
    ---------------------------------------------------------------------------
begin xtset ---
    - version 9.2
    - syntax [varlist(numeric max=2 default=none)] [,*]
variable NewCompanyNum not found
    -----------------------------------------------------------------------------
end xtset ---
(error occurred while loading CalledPooledModel.ado)

CalledPooledModel is the ado and the only place in the ado program
where NewCompanyNum is used is in the command

xtset NewCompanyNum TradeDateNum

so I am still left wondering if the ado processes prior to execution
and determines that this variable does not exist and generates the
error while loading or something else?
