Hi list,

I've been trying to use reclink (by Michael Blasnik) to merge two
files by city names, but the program terminates with a stange error.
Here's the command:
reclink city_name using cbscities.dta, idmaster(id) idusing(postcode)
gen (mscore)

And here's the output:
16 perfect matches found
Going through 64001 observation to assess fuzzy matches, each .=5% complete
option izbat not allowed

Because I did not specify "izbat", I suspect a bug in reclink.

Is anyone familiar with this error, or even better, has a solution?
