Dear list,

I am receiving an error message when running mean2 as in the example
from the mean2 help:

use http://www.stata-press.com/data/r11/nhanes2f, clear
mean2 height age weight smsa using myfile.txt, over(sex) cat(Male
Female) excel replace
option linesize() not allowed
r(198);

When I use the exact same code on another computer I do not receive
this error message.

First, note that the help file for -mean2- (available from SSC) says "You will also need to install the latest versions of outreg2 and sxpose from ssc." So, make sure that both machines have both programs, and also that your Stata is fully updated.

Second, messages like this often seem to come about when there is some kind of installation problem or you don't have the most current version of programs. So, if problems persist, you might try

ssc install mean2, replace
ssc install sxpose, replace
ssc install outreg2, replace
update all

Incidentally, your example worked fine for me, once I realized that I needed sxpose too.
