I don't know how unmatched parentheses explain unmatched quotes. It's a matter of record that I said "variable label", then "value labels". 

There is no question of anyone being aggressive. Manifestly, people were willing to help you, but feel a little let down that it appears to have been wasted effort. No more, no less.

I didn't mean to waste anyone's time. I have a bunch of do-files and I
just discovered an unmatched pair of parentheses in the dofile where I
created the label. when Nick said to check label I thought he was
referring to 0 vs urban.

Again, I didn't omit any information on purpose, I have read the FAQ(a
while back) and I apologize if I wasted everybody's time. I do feel
though people are a little aggressive...but my fault I guess.
