No, you don`t. -input- is just for illustration purposes. You turn your stringvars into numeric ones the way it is done at the end of the code via -encode-...

My dataset is in .dta file. Do I still use the "input" command for that?

Let me illustrate the last point...

**********
clear*

input  var1:mylabel str1 var2 , auto
C C
D D
E E
C C
E E
D D
end

compress

//see the codes
list, noobs nolabel

//turn var2 into same format as var1
encode var2, gen(var3)

list, noobs nolabel
**********

The -auto- option to-input- which accomplishes this feat is just a
shorthand version of -encode-. So use that and see whether -statsby-
works
properly then...

My original dataset contains millions of data. Is there a way to bypass
the "input" command and use something else? Or should I switch to
version
9 or 10 for this?

-help whatsnew- mentions that there was an issue with strings in
the -by-
option to -statsby- which were fixed between version 8 and 9. So make
sure
you use my -input- command given earlier so that numeric codes get
passed
to
the -by- option...

This is so strange. I have added the clear option to my command but
it
still does not work :-(
