Note that good Statalist practice is to say _where_ you got
user-written versions from .

-_ms_omit_info- is a built-in Stata command. In Stata 12.1 I get

. which _ms_omit_info
built-in command:  _ms_omit_info

Evidently, the version of -spost9_ado- you are using requires a
version of Stata that includes _ms_omit_info.

Although spost9_ado is billed as for Stata 9 up, in practice it does
require a higher version, specifically Stata 11 up.

Note that the -version 9- statements in the package code make no
difference to that, as -version- is not a time machine. For
elucidation if desired see

        7/11    I have a certain version of Stata and have come
                across a user-written program that is apparently
                written for a later version of Stata. What are
                my options?

Fernando needs to upgrade Stata, or to find an older version of
-spost*-, or (in principle at least) to rewrite -spost*- so that it
works on his Stata. The last is the most work, and the first is the
most expenditure.
