Hi Nick,
thank you very much for your response. I am using Stata 11.

I'm now using "list" as a workaround.

Thanks again,

You can keep the Editor open during other calculations in Stata 12. If
your Stata is much earlier, you can't.

I'm trying to use Stata to generate realtime stock market trading signals.
As soon as my trading system has proven to be valid, I'm going to
reimplement my strategy in a dedicated c++ program.
Until then, I would like to bother Stata to do the job.

Currently, I'm requesting realtime qoutes from my mySQL server via ODBC in
an infinite loop.

How can I tell Stata to update the data editor while calculations are still
in progress (because of the infinite loop)?
