Hello,

A colleague sent me the ado file user-written command, "getreg," that
he wrote. it is an important piece of code in a do file we are
running. I downloaded the ado file, looked up the ado directory using
sysdir, and saved it into a directory that stata recognizes. In fact,
I tried saving it into every possible different folder recognized by
sysdir. When I run the do-file, stata still doesn't recognize the
command. But when it returns the error message, it says "unrecognized
command: numformat," which is not the name of the command, nor does
"numformat" ever even appear in the do file. When I type the command
itself alone into the command box, it seems to recognize the command,
because it doesn't return the "unrecognized command" error message.
But in the do-file the command, "getreg' is not appearing in blue, and
I can't run the do file. I have no idea why this is happening, can
someone help solve this problem??

Thanks,

Jonah
