I just tried adding a comment after -end- to make sure that it got read, and 
apparently it fixed the problem. Thanks so much.

.
Try sticking a blank line after end.  Depending 
on your text editor, there may not be an end of 
line character at the end of the line so Stata 
ignores it and never finds the "end" 
command.  Adding that blank line makes sure the 
text editor ends that line correctly.
