Has anyone run into trouble using ICE in Stata 10? When attempting to use the passive and substitute options, I get an error message that states "Unknown function index()". I have followed examples and done a lot of troubleshooting, but this error message is persistent and I don't know the reason for it. Below is an example of my syntax:
Also, there are various incarnations of ice floating around. There is an updated version of the ice that appeared in the Stata Journal. It is called st0067_2 and is dated Dec. 5, 2005.

However, SSC also has a version, simply called ice, and it is dated Sept 14, 2007. My guess is that this is the latest and greatest version.

My experience is that, when there are multiple versions, the SSC version tends to be the most up to date, but there are exceptions to that. Unfortunately, if you have, say the st0067_2 version, adoupdate isn't going to catch that there is a more current version on SSC.

I love Stata Journal, but it is important to realize it does not always have the latest versions of the programs that initially appeared in it.
