from an ado, I'd like to know the name of the do file that called it. Is there any type of predefined macro that automatically stores the do file name, analogous to S_FN for file names? Or is there any other way to do it that doesn't involve adding a macro to the do file?


As I noted in my response to your earlier question, you'll get better help if you describe what you're trying to do (in full), rather than just asking for help piecemeal along the way. For example, it sounds in this case like you may be trying to use an idiom from another language that doesn't apply in Stata, but there's no way we can tell that (or otherwise determine how best to help) if we don't know what you're trying to do.
