The Stata FAQ does advise 

"The current version of Stata is 11. Please specify if you are using an earlier version; otherwise, the answer to your question is likely to refer to commands or features unavailable to you."


On the first, you can not use -set obs 1- to decrease the number of observations. You need to issue -clear- first. 

Also, please edit posts, as also advised in the FAQ.
