I ran this with Stata 11 MP, Mac OSX, using the -scheme s2color- (though I don't know how this makes a difference). > Make sure there is a space between the double quotes in the line (location of space marked with a capital X below for illustration): > > if !inlist(`n', 1, 20, 40, 60 , 74) /// > replace o`varname' = o`varname' + `" `n' "X" "' > > You may have lost that space when copy/pasting the code from your email client to your Stata do-file editor I do have a number for each "make" categorical observation -- running on Stata for Mac, either 9 or 10. I don't have 11, but maybe you can try it out on your Mac with -version 10-? I definitely used your code and did not suppress the space between double quotes.
