When I use this type of notation you suggested to run a 2-way repeated
Anova

anova y x1##x2 subject

I get different results for the F-statistics than using

anova y subject x1 / subject#x1 x2 / subject#x2 x1#x2, repeated(x1 x2)

(this command is taken from
http://www.stata.com/support/faqs/stat/anova2.html "No between-subjects
factors with two repeated variables")

(a) Why would this happen (because of the additional interactions?) i.e.
which version is "correct"
(b) is there another way similar to the 2-way command I described to do
a
3-way anova?
