A second guess is that that would evoke a different error message. It follows that you did not type what you said. 

Note that the authors of -prvalue- are not (obviously) members of Statalist.

-prvalue- is a user-written command, whose provenance you do not give.

My guess is that your problem is a side-effect of incorrect syntax.
You use - where = seems needed for the -x()- option.
