:) this was a nice comment. Yes! before putting a query on statalist i always try all poosibilities i know. i can view complete log files for most of the work i have saved but few show only the first few and dont give any error message or anything. if i scroll down to the bottom of the log file it shows just few estimations i did in the beginning. its just like when u do so many estimations we can view only the last few commands in the result window and cannot go up.
 
What should I do to overcome this problem?
