Rachel,

there are several possibilities. The fault may lie with a loop that
you forgot to close in interactive mode. For example:

. forvalues x = 1/10 {
  2. blah
  3. blubb
  4. exit
  5.

In this case, a closing brace } will close the loop and make Stata
execute the loop. Or you interactively used -program- :

. program hello
  1. This
  2. has
  3. numbers
  4. end

In this case, type -end-. The other thing that comes to mind is
-input-. Typing -end- will help here, too.

Hope this helps,
Eva
