Hellow All, 

     I am writing a do file (test.do) which will have 3 arguments a, b and c. When I run 

 

do test apple 4 5     

stata will think apple as a, 4 as b and so on. This might be a problem if your program displays the first argument and adds the last two and you run it in wrong order 

 

do test 4 apple 5 

 

Is there a way to have stata understand that apple is argument a, 4 is a and 5 is c despite the order of the parameters while running? 

 

Thanks,

Tashi
