On your machine, you should be able to allocate much more than 1200m. I have
almost an identical configuration, and can set mem to 6 G w/o problems.

Your do-file could contain the line


set mem 1200m

among its first lines. Setting mem permanently does not mean that you cannot
deviate from your setting on an ad-hoc basis...

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.
