st: RE: mijoin command

I've never used -mijoin-, but I suggest you add a trailing "\" to your folder name, as it appears to be looking for a filename stub (i.e. you could name your files file1.dta, file2.dta etc) rather than just a folder name.

Hi. I am trying to use the mijoin command in stata 9. I'm running into problems and was hoping that someone would have some ideas.

I have 5 imputed datasets (impext1.dta - impext5.dta) that I want to combine.

My code is

mijoin E:\stata impt sets 622\impext, clear m(5)

I receive the following error message

file E:\stata impt sets 622\impext1.dta not found

All 5 datasets are in the "impext" folder. I copied and pasted the address so I know the address is typed correctly. The files are the same size, have the same variables, same number of observations, etc. I feel like I must be missing something simple, but I don't have any ideas.

Does anyone have any thoughts?

Thanks!

melissa
