Good news! My -joinby- problem was sorted out: simply by running the
commands as I did over the weekend, they worked!! :-) Out of common
courtesy to those who responded, the -about- details and (varlist-revised)
command I was trying to run are:

Please let me know of any etiquette points regarding the presentation of
this output. I've elected to omit the -desc- and -sum- details because, as
you can no doubt see, they are rather long!! *lol* Many thanks to Renzo
and Nick for their very helpful suggestions.

Nick, I take your point about the use of foreign characters in varnames,
and I'm going to remove my pound signs from my datasets lest any
program-error risks and the like occur in the future. Feel free to blow
the whistle to Stata on my discovery!!

Cheers! :-)
