Maarten, Nick,

Thank you very much. The string it was. This bit me before, I should
have known better.

On googling: it is often faster, better laid, easier to navigate etc.
if you search on the web. Usually the Stata documentation is
well-maintained and full online, but I somehow missed this error
message.

In any case, thanks again!

Laszlo
