Hi all,
For some reason, this syntax returns an error:

. tabsort phu_nam, summarize(rate) sort(mean)
sort(mean) not allowed without summarize( )

But this abbreviated syntax works without a hitch:

. tabsort phu_nam, su(rate) so(mean)

I haven't finished my first cup of coffee this morning, so maybe I'm missing
something obvious. But, yes, my Stata is up to date.
summari is allowed, but not summarize. tabsort is a version 6 program. The limit is a throw back to the time when macro names were limited in length. However, the error message is wrong.
