st: macro list parsing

I am trying order the variables on one file according to the order on another file.
This works well on the example datasets, e.g.

*********************************************
sysuse autornd.dta,clear
ds
local orderlist `r(varlist)'
sysuse auto.dta,clear
d
order `orderlist',after(turn)
d
*********************************************

But returns an error code when I attempt the same on my own data:

variable __000005 not found
r(111);

Any ideas? Many thanks,

Jakob Petersen
