I get an error when running your earlier example as a do-file, though:


. end
unrecognized command:  end
r(199);

No, you can put the -input- command into a do-file, you don't have to use it
from the command line.  

Also, you could use -replace- in a loop (-foreach- or -while- possibly in
combination with -tokenize-)  to speed up that process.  
Another option might be to use -merge- to merge in a column of brand names.
