Re: st: Stata versions and reproductibility problem.

Daniel, Thanks for the support. Unfortunatelly, I have the version 8 cdrom back in France. Have a nice day. Amadou.

I never encountered that and all my old do-file back to Stata 7 still produce identical graphs and results. That's puzzling, I can't help then... As a quick workaround you could reinstall Stata 8; there are no conflicts between the two and they run smoothly next to each other on the same PC.
