No, Stata does not report the file and line number where the error has occured.
There are different ways to get around this by injecting
comments/display statements throughout the code. None satisfies me so
far.
Also, consider changing your project. Stata is not very capable of
managing a project of 100 files (in the Microsoft Visual Studio
sense).
Perhaps this could be reduced to 2 files, where one master file calls
a another file with some parameters?
