Dear Stata-listers,

I have consulted the link below as kindly provided by Nick Cox. I have a
large do-file that I wish to run parts of from within Ultra-Edit.

I followed the instructions to set up the link between Ultra Edit as
In Ultra-Edit, go to Advanced and then Tool Configuration. Set the working
directory to d:\ (for example). The command line should read (modify
executable as needed) c:\stata\wsestata.exe do  "%f".
The instruction say that Stata SE should now appear at the bottom of the
Advanced menu, so that clicking on it brings up Stata and runs the current
file. Instead, in the Advance drop-down menu, one has to choose "Run Windows
Program" and the command c:\stata\wsestata.exe do  "%f" will run and execute
the whole do file.  

My query is that, is there a way to modify that last bit (do "%f") so that
only the currently selected (or highlighted) lines of syntax (in the
do-file) are to be executed.

Many thanks for your advice in advance.
