The FAQ advises explicitly at 

http://www.stata.com/support/faqs/res/statalist.html#stata

"Say exactly what you typed and exactly what Stata typed (or did) in response. N.B. exactly!"

Ignoring this advice just confused people trying to help and slowed down your own project. Please do pay attention!

It does ! So that solves my confusion with -nearest-, or rather with the basic syntax of Stata...

This error message suggest that you put the -if- statement after the 
comma, but -if- is not an option (it almost never is) and should thus appear before the comma.
