This message that I sent earlier has not made it through to the list;
I therefore re-send it. My apologies, should it appear twice.

 Jingjing,

 Also, take a look at the following line:

 > sca1ar `g4l'=`g14'

 You want `g41' here, not `g4l' (i.e. the number 1 instead of the
 letter l, as in life). With the commands  -scalar- and -forvalues- it's the
 other way round (you have the number 1 in those commands where
 you should have the letter l). See also -help scalar-
 and -help forvalues-.

 Oh, and I just noticed that your line

 > replace `w3' =
`a3'+`g31'*`lnp1'+`g32*`lnp2'+`g33'*`lnp3'+`g34'*`lnp4'+`b3'*(`lnm'-`lnpindex')

 still lacks a closing single quote after `g32. You want:

 replace `w3' =
`a3'+`g31'*`lnp1'+`g32'*`lnp2'+`g33'*`lnp3'+`g34'*`lnp4'+`b3'*(`lnm'-`lnpindex')
