While we are being picky: If all you want is the max and no display of any
kind, you might as well code 

**************
sum duplicate, mean
forvalues j = 1/`r(max)' {
**************

They say it is faster than a normal -summarize-...

Subject: st: Capture inside a forvalues loop

I have an error inside of my for values loop which is inconsequential
to my results, but i would like to log it in another variable so I can
later look at the data set and see where the error occured.  What I
have now is:

*****
quietly sum duplicate
forvalues j = 1/`r(max)' {
capture replace advisor = advisorindividual`j' if duplicate == `j'
}

I have tried a couple of different ways, but I'm not sure how I can
create a variable "error" which will displays zeros in each row where
the error did not occur, and display the error _rc in the rows that it
did occur.

Thanks,
Conor
