Hi,

I'm a new stata user and am trying to do some fuzzy matching using
first and last names using reclink.ado.  I have received an error
message that is unclear to me and I was hoping someone could shed some
light on the cause of the error.

Here is my code and error message:
reclink last_name first_name using "D:\GEAR UP\Baylor\data\converted
to stata\clean\waco_taks_3rdadmin_only.dta", idmaster(id1)
idusing(id2) gen(score)
invalid 'UP'
r(198);

Thanks,
Stephanie
