Please, could you explain me why the svmat command changes numbers?

just a simple example:

"
. mat A=19903011

. clear

. svmat A
number of observations will be reset to 1
Press any key to continue, or Break to abort
obs was 0, now 1

. di A1
19903012
"
Its a huge problem to me.

thank you

Roman
