Re: st: new outreg and error code r(3499)

I have gotten a couple of emails off of Statalist about this problem in the past day or two.  It seems to be an incompatibility of mata libraries compiled under Stata 12.1 with previous versions of Stata.  When I create the mata library, I use version control set for version 9.2, but it does not seem to do the trick.  I am perplexed why the -outreg- package downloaded from stata-journal.com works for Neil Meredith whereas the version on SSC, which should be identical, does not.  The error message received by another user who contacted me was this:

(_CColJoin() in l_cfrmt, compiled by Stata 12.1, is too new to be run by this version of Stata and so was ignored)
              MakeSmat():  3499  _CColJoin() not found
             CalcStats():     -  function returned error
                 <istmt>:     -  function returned error
r(3499);
 
I have asked Stata Technical Support for help with this, but I would appreciate ideas from Statalisters as well.

John
