I am definitely a beginner at STATA.

I have been using the logout command to export results to excel file
formats. A typical command is:

logout, save(OwnPaddyRainFedFreq) excel replace:tabulate ntpc_a_domain
OwnRainfedPaddy, chi2 miss nofreq row

I have a master file that calls a sequence of do files which contain various
analyses and the logout commands.

The problem is that the master do files have stopped working - they return
the error "Obs. nos. out of range r(198)".  I tracked this error down to the
logout command.  Everything works fine if I disable the logout command

The strange thing (to me) is that 
(1)	The master do files worked perfectly when I last used them
(2)	if I open the individual do files and run them with ctrl D they work
perfectly.  It is only when called from another do file that they fail.  

I have disabled the logout commands and now everything works but I would
like to fix the problem properly
