simple answer: there is no maxlags() option. From -help varsoc-,

Main
maxlag(#) set maximum lag order to #; default is maxlag(4)

Leave off the s and it should work!

I would like to test the number of lags needed in a panel data set.
Therefore, I use varsoc to test the number of lags for each time series.
But I would like to increase the number of max lags. How can I use this
as an option in the following code? Because the following does not work,
due to: , maxlags(8)

forvalues i=1/108 {
display "Calc number of lags pstrmon for CUSIP" `i'
varsoc pstrmon, maxlags(8) if cusip == `i'
more
}
