How do I send program output to Technical Support?
||Sending program output to Technical Support
||Stata Technical Support
We cannot, in general, debug programs for you, but there are exceptions.
Perhaps there is evidence that the problem lies with a Stata-written program.
In any case, Stata can trace the execution of programs, and, in some cases, it
is a trace of the execution that we need. These traces, however, can be long.
If, after initially emailing us, we request a trace, use the following
. log using junk, replace
. * so far, this is the same procedure you would use to send us any type
. * of output
. set more off
. set trace on
. command causing problem
. log close
. * now we tell Stata to stop tracing programs:
. set trace off
. set more on
These commands will create the file junk.smcl, which you can then email
