This code depends on r(mean) being defined when you call -histogram-,
which in turn depends on the results of -summarize- being accessible
(or, more generally, the results of any command that leaves r(mean) in
its wake). So, test that by

. display r(mean)

to see what is there, just before the -histogram- call.
