doedit issue

Postby Barry Quinn » Sat Oct 29, 2011 4:27 am

Hello
I am using the following code to create a .rat file after i have loaded some data from a stata file
Code: Select all
dedit(new) "C:\Users\barry\Documents\WinRATS 8\cudata.rat"
store lgasgr lgmemgr lgnosgr capr unemp unrate lggdpgr
save

I keep getting the following error message when running this code :
Code: Select all
Editing data file "C:\Users\barry\Documents\WinRATS 8\cudata.rat"
## SX13. "|ø" Is Not a Valid RATS Variable Name

Does anyone know why RATS doesn't recognise these variable names??

thanks
Barry Quinn

Is this with version 8.0? If so, I think you are running into a known issue with using STORE. That's been fixed, and the fix is included in the new 8.1 release. The university should have received its 8.1 CD by now, so try installing and running that--it should resolve the problem.

You'll need to email us the program (and any source data files, if possible) so we can see exactly what you are doing. Send them to
