Thanks for your advice Nick, and sorry for my thoughtlessness. Poi (2002) stands for "Poi, B. P. 2002. From the help desk: Demand system estimation.  Stata Journal 2(4): 403--410". Also, I have double checked all the variables that I used and none of them has any missing values.

Besides, many apologies to anyone who might have considered helping me, but found it impossible to implement my ado program, because I did not send my do code in the first place. So, I am copying my do code here. As you can see, the do code will load food.dta into your stata from http://www.stata-press.com/data/r11/food. So, expect for some copying and pasting, it is all ready for anyone interested enough to quickly run my code and see how the problem comes up. 

Cheers,
Ou
