"There are [undocumented] ways to make it more user-friendly though."

Maybe you could provide Jennifer and the rest of the list with some ad-hoc documentation how to make Stata more verbose about such issues?

Dear Jennifer,

Stata is not particularly verbose with error messages in dialogs, so
when it encounters an error in a dialog program (like your "command")
it just interrupts execution at that point, often without any
notification. There are [undocumented] ways to make it more
user-friendly though. In your case:
EDIT transfa28    190 @   60   20, label(transfe28)<<<<<<<<<<
is declared in the dialog definitions, but program "command" refers to:
main.transfe28<<<<<<<<<<

Hence Stata tells me:
object main.transfe28 not found
error 9016

Fixing is easy, change "transfa28" to "transfe28"

Best regards,
  Sergiy Radyakin

True, that is the key to the whole thing.
Still, you have reserved way too little space for the elements in this db, as everything past "Opción 2: a grado 7 y 8" gets chopped...

The most likely problem is that you have two GROUPBOXes called
"variables". Rename (or remove) one.
