|Stata 7: Clicking on large datasets
|Jeremy B. Wernow, StataCorp
When you double-click a Stata dataset, sometimes you will receive an error message that says “no more room to add observations”.
When you double-click a filename, Windows uses the command line stored in the file type association for that file with Stata.
The command line can be used to allocate memory to Stata upon startup. If you receive an error message that says “no more room to add more observations”, then the amount of memory being allocated to Stata in this command line is less than the size of the file that you are opening.
An example of a such a command is
C:\STATA7\WSTATA.EXE /k1000 use "%1"
The number following the “k” is the amount of memory being allocated to Stata (in kilobytes).
