Dear Fredrik,

Thanks a lot for your suggestions.

I am using Stata 8,

And updated all by using STATA's website browser:


And followed the instructions given.

I couldn't update by typing -update all-. When I tried Stata gave the
foloowing error message:

connection timed out -- see help r(2) for troubleshooting

I reset timout1 and timeout2 but still the same error message appeared
after a while.

Thanks, Shqiponja

Which version of Stata are you using? I assume "I have updated Stata 
very recently"  mean you bought the latest version rather than just use 
-updated all-. This is important since the -varlist()- option was added 
with Stata8.
