I can see why you want this. Naturally, if Stata did start implementing "error on line ... of ..." then sometimes it might be useful and other times it could just be ignored. My main point is factual: Stata doesn't work that way.

But, it would still be useful that Stata can detect the exact line where an error occurs in cases where one has a code in which no other .do file is called. ivica -----Original Message----- From: owner-statalist@hsphsun2.harvard.edu [mailto:owner-statalist@hsphsun2.harvard.edu] On Behalf Of Nick Cox Sent: 24. studeni 2011 12:28 To: statalist@hsphsun2.harvard.edu Subject: Re: st: exact row in which error occurs Stata doesn't work in this way, partly because do-files can and usually do call other do-files, ado-files, commands, functions, etc., and a row number -- presumably meaning file line number -- would not have very much meaning in many instances, and/or would refer to a line in code that is proprietary and so hidden from you. -set trace- leads to ways of detecting where errors occur. Otherwise the difference between -do- and -run- is important here.
