We can then tabulate these variables to see their exact content and decide whether they are suitable for our analysis. use aage asex using 8datadir/aindresp, clear where the dollar sign ($) indicates that dat adir is the name of a global macro that we have defined earlier in the do file. The option clear is used to clear the memory in case another dataset is already open.

The command to create a new log file is log using, while the command to close a log file (if one log file is already open in memory) is log close. Note that the command log close generates an error message if there is no log file currently open in memory. Sometimes the execution of the do file stops because of an error. We correct the error and run the do file again. In this case, however, we have a log file already open in memory because Stata has executed the command log using but the execution of the do file terminated before the command log close (the do file never completed running and never got to the point where the command log close is written).

2 By default, Stata displays the results in the 'Results' windows page by page; we will then be prompted to press any key or click on the -more- link at the bottom of the page to display the next page. We use the command set more off to show the entire set of results, even if longer than one page, without pausing after each page. This command is useful when we are executing do files and when we are using Stata interactively and want to store all the results appearing in the 'Results' window in a file which can be consulted later.
