Hi all,
I was using Stata in my school server, and requested them to update the Stata 10. Somehow while updating they messed up something and now I am getting "unrecognized command: label r(199)" error message. Any command that includes the "label" command such as "clear" gives the same error. Since they don't have any idea about Stata they can not fix it. Is there anyone who had similar problems and give me some advice or just has an idea what may be going on? Thanks.

Your technical people should get in touch with StataCorp Technical
Support. This suggests an incomplete update, but a ton of speculation on quite what has happened would be worth less than a gram, or even an ounce, of precise help from StataCorp. But sometimes even technical people copy across a new executable without typing -update swap- as instructed By the way, there is no inherent virtue to quick questions, which can be just as difficult to answer as any other kind.

Thanks for the answer. "Quick Question" is just a way of getting
attention I guess since I am in deep trouble because of this delaying problem.

That is candid, but since you raise the point, I have to say that is
quite the wrong answer to give. Any explicit or tacit claim to special or urgent attention is antisocial, unless you are prepared to pay special rates to a willing consultant -- in which case that would not be a matter for Statalist. The point was discussed in detail in a thread starting with <http://www.stata.com/statalist/archive/2008-04/msg01286.html> None of that denies your "deep trouble", but the point remains. Any way, you have two answers. Nick [hidden email] mujde erten "Quick Question" is just a way of getting attention I guess since I am in deep trouble because of this delaying problem.
