Sounds rather convoluted and without a link to the solution you
mention it looks like its something to do with the do-file editor (its
very easy to cite such sources in emails by copying and pasting the
URL into the email).

Why not just call your do-file with the -, nostop- option as described in...

        tip for using the do command's nostop option

When running your do-file simply type...

do my_script, nostop
