Dear Austin: Thanks for your help. Yes, actually number of observations is pretty large because e.g. ustbill repeat in panels (2000firms*100mon). Unfortunately, I am trying to calculate the measure for each observation ! I corrected the vfs and d1 but still it is having some problem. Do you think this program can still help?
