Re: st: Stata versions and reproductibility problem.

Hi Daniel,

I forgot to mention that. I issued version 8.2 at the top. But it still crashed at the graph commands. That's what puzzled me. Amadou.

Amadou, insert -version 8.2- at the beginning of your do-files and everything will work in Stata 9 as it did in Stata 8.2.
