Hi,

Thanks Mark--however the settings I described are set permanently...ie before I open the do file ...or I may not have caught your meaning...if so I apologize and request further clarification.

Best

You should allocate your memory before you open your do-file, the big

I am running into the problem of "op system refuses to provide memory". I
can't understand why.

My settings are maxvar 5000, matsize 5000, and memory 1200 MB (Stata won't
allow me to allocate more than 1200MB either).

I run into the problem mostly while using svy commands on a large dataset (2
million+ observations) but also when conducting merges and more
time-consuming commands, etc.
