I have a do file something line below. When this error occured no
output file was open. I also have the necessary permissions for the
directory that I am writing to. By the way I get the error message for
different values of the loop counter, i. I mean for example, I get the
error message when i=36; I rerun the do file and now I get the error
message for a different value of i.

clear all
cd "my directory"
local fname levfinalave
use `fname'.dta, clear

xtset firmno period

local i=1

cd "output directory"

foreach depvar in "depvar_1" "depvar_2" "depvar_3" "depvar_4" {
 foreach size in "size1" "size2" {	
    foreach growth in "g1" "g2" {

xtreg `depvar' `size'  `growth'  gdprgrowth ddebt_gdphaz if `depvar'>=0, fe
est store m`i'
outreg2 [m`i'] using levave_fs, alpha(0.01, 0.05, 0.01) dec(4) excel
local i=`i'+1

display "Estimation No: " `i'

est clear
