1. I prefer when generate or replace variable on the dataset the
command attach as a different type of note to the dataset. This option
should be set off and on in order to reduce the file size.

2. if there is a command to open folder and file using Stata (same as
window explore) will be useful to browse documents easily. I have done
the program called expl (ssc install expl) for this purpose but it may
not work on server.

3. Direct exporting Stata table command result to excel also useful.

4. Specify the command line which gives error in loop commands.
