-sc- is interpreted by Stata as an abbreviation for -twoway graph scatter-, I believe. That would be consistent with the error message you receive: you likely do not have a variable named "install" in your data set to plot against another variable named "overid". And since you did not the -ssc- command to install -overid-, the latter command is not recognized by your copy of Stata.

Try your same command after replacing -sc- with -ssc-, and report back to the list if you still have problems.

Hope this helps,
