I made the correction but

 tempfile tmp

.
. local j = 1

.
. forv i = 39(-1)1 {
  2.
. insheet using "wer.csv", sheet("Sheet`i'") firstrow clear
  3.
. if mod(`i',3) !=0 {
  4.
.                 qui merge 1:1 _n using `tmp', nogenerate
  5.
.                 save `tmp' ,replace
  6.
.         }
  7.
.         else {
  8.
.                 save `tmp', replace
  9.
.         }
 10.
.         if mod(`j', 3) == 0 {
 11.
.                 save gr`i', replace
 12.
.                 local j = 1
 13.
.         }
 14.
.         else {
 15.
.                 local j = `j' + 1
 16.
.         }
 17.
. }
option sheet() not allowed
r(198);

Why do I receive this mistake?

thanks in advance
