You could just upgrade for free to Stata 10.1, and use the -rpoisson()-

Subject: st: Stata stuck in loop with -rndpoi-?

I am attempting to generate 10000 random number based on a poisson
distribution with mean from my data, using -rndpoi- (from ssc).
I seem to encounter a problem when the mean is greater than 700.  Would
anyone be able to help me, either with an alternative method of producing
the figures I need, or what I am currently doing wrong?


*this works:
rndpoi 10000 694.5
*this doesn't:
rndpoi 10000 710
I am currently using Stata 10.0 on Windows. 
Thank you,
