I am having problems getting -fillin- to work on a dataset with a variable which takes a large number of values (32000).

My dataset has just 2 variables sex, and area (as string). No missing values.
. tab sex, mi
        sex |      Freq.     Percent        Cum.
------------+-----------------------------------
          1 |     32,507       50.01       50.01
          2 |     32,496       49.99      100.00
------------+-----------------------------------
      Total |     65,003      100.00

so now I
. fillin sex soal

But after this I have no extra records 
. tab fillin, mi

    _fillin |      Freq.     Percent        Cum.
------------+-----------------------------------
          0 |     65,003      100.00      100.00
------------+-----------------------------------
      Total |     65,003      100.00

The command works fine on a subset of the same data:

. tab sex, mi
        sex |      Freq.     Percent        Cum.
------------+-----------------------------------
          1 |         35       49.30       49.30
          2 |         36       50.70      100.00
------------+-----------------------------------
      Total |         71      100.00

then:
. fillin sex soal
    _fillin |      Freq.     Percent        Cum.
------------+-----------------------------------
          0 |         71       98.61       98.61
          1 |          1        1.39      100.00
------------+-----------------------------------
      Total |         72      100.00
