That second comma in your syntax may come back to haunt you... Play around with the example in the help file to see what works and what doesn`t:

sysuse auto, clear
digdis price, by(rep) gen(myvar) pos(2)
digdis price, by(rep) ,gen(myvar) pos(2)

Betreff: st: Help on DIGDIS Syntax


I am using Stata 9.2 Intercooled.  I am trying to use the DIGDIS ado from

The data set has the following variables:

licenceid (Licence number of a fisherman)
totalkgs (the weight of the fish landed by the fisherman)

I am trying to get the Benford distribution of the first digits of the
variable totalkgs, and have that result saved into a new variable.

The way that I am structuring the syntax is:

digdis totalkgs, by(licenceid), generate(b1)

My understanding is that I have to specify one "newvar" for each input
variable.  I am new to Stata and I am not sure i have the syntax correct.

Any thoughts?  Thanks,
