The -svyset-tings should be remembered by Stata, so you only have to do it
once. For combinations of multiple datasets, see the bottom of the -help

Betreff: st: svyset commands attaching to DB's?


It appears that when I run a svyset command, this information is stored in
the database somehow, and when the database moves, they svy: commands still
work, even on other computers, etc.

However, when two databases, each with svy commands attached are combined
together, these commands sometimes work and sometimes don't.  It appears to
have something to do with the way the svy commands were set up.  

Does anyone have any experience with this type of problem?  Can multiple
db's be combined together and still allow the original svy commands to
work?  Or is there some way to conditionally execute the commands so that
they will work when all db's are combined together?

Thanks for any help you can provide.
