Re: st: Do file editor

Stata's do file editor has an upper limit on file size which is 128K bytes (though Stata for Macintosh has no such limit). It looks like you're bumping into that ceiling when pasting more code.

One solution is to divide your program. Another is to use a different text editor to edit your do-files. There is a detailed discussion about this at http://fmwww.bc.edu/repec/bocode/t/textEditors.html.

If you're a Windows man, the quickest fix is using notepad. In the long run, I recommend vim. It's maddening while you learn, but vim mastery is so sweet.
