Rodrigo Brice´┐Żo

I'm using one procedure that Nick [Cox] gave me few weeks ago. But I
have one
problem that I don't know how to resolve.

The solution provided was:

bysort clave1 : gen freq = - _N
egen group = egroup(freq clave1) , l(clave1)
tabulate group if group < 11

And I trying to use the same sintaxis to obtain from the variable
"diagnostico" the 10 most frequent diagnoses for an hospital.
The error ocurres in the second step of the procedure. The variable is

egen group=egroup(freq diagnostico), I(diagnostico)
I() invalid

>>> As indicated in the help, the option concerned is -label()-.
That is, you typed "I", as in "India",
whereas you should have typed "l", as in (say) "label".
