Generally, this is a very bad idea.  You will get biased estimates of any parameters you estimate unless the data is missing at random.  Check the multiple imputation manual.  Also note that Stata is not capitalized as you have done.

Dear Stata Users,

I have a question about deleting missing data.
I would like to delete cases if they have missing values in any variables in
my dataset.
How can I do in STATA to delete these cases with any missing data?
Could you please share STATA codes with me?

Thank you very much for your great help!

Sincerely,
Patricia
