Q:  

I am trying to create a 2011 stata file based on a Multiple Cause of Death file. I have downloaded the data and DO files from NBER. Alas, the program isn’t working.

A:  

NBER’s DO files are excellent – well annotated. Anytime you need a reminder of how to read in raw data in stata you should use these as templates.

You need to follow exactly what they say to do. On line 23 of the DO file you have added dta to the file name. Delete that extension and it should work.
