Remove the second pair of brackets in your -stset- statement. They are not legal Stata syntax.

Sorry for the impatientness, but I have to solve the problem very soon. 
The case:
- 4841 subjects with multiple record per subject (max 4 records)
- for each subject exists a weight, which identifies the real abundance pattern in time

I used the following do-file: 
gen des =tfin~=ti

gen tf = tfin-tstart+1

gen org=1+2*(spell-1)
replace des=org
replace des=org+1 if tfin<ti
gen tfc=tstart if spell==1
replace tfc=tfc[_n-1] if spell~=1 & hhnrakt==hhnrakt[_n-1]
gen tsp = tstart-tfc
gen tfp = tfin-tfc+1
stset tfp [fweight=gew] [ ,id(hhnrakt) f(des=2 4 6 8 10 12) exit(time .)]  

Thanks for your support.

Jette, can you provide a reproducible example? That may help diagnose
your problem. Can you reproduce the error with -sysuse- data or
provide your console output, please?

Also, it may take more than a few hours to get a response given
different time zones and work schedule.
