Are you absolutely certain that you have a variable with the name
Dose_Group (with uppercase and lowercase characters as shown)?
Yes - it's probably an error 40 (the error is 40 cm from the

I have found that almost 98% of my problems with Stata involve error 40. Stata really needs to do something about that. :)
