Dear Mr. Cox, 

I face the following problem and hope that you can help me out:

I’m a student at the University of Leipzig. At the moment I try to rake a sample to fit the local population. For this I was going to use survwgt.ado by Nicholas Winter.

Unfortunately the program does “just” produce the raking weights, but does not show me how many iterations were needed to converge. 

I Asked Prof. Winter to give ma advice on how survwgt could display the iterations, but he merely explained that it would need to make a small change (“one line” as he stated) in the program code.

Since I’m an absolute beginner on stata in general and programming in particular I have no clue how to perform this changes. 

I hoped that you might help me, since the adofile state’s that Winters program is based on your mstdize.ado file.

Since I’m running out of luck (and time) I really hope that you can help along.
