     I was ecstatic this morning to find out stata allows to open another dataset while dataset from web is in memory, which runs counter to belief that stata allows only one dataset in memory. I would be very interested to know the reason. Could someone throw light in this..


webuse even 

use t2   (stata is happy) 



webuse even 

rename number number1   

use t2   (stata doesn't like it and says "no; data in memory would be lost")


use t2 

use t3   (stata doesn't like it and we all know this)


thanx guys...
