In Windows XP the command -graph export filename.wmf- only works if
the filename has fewer than 22 characters.

. graph export 1234567890123456789012.wmf
error creating metafile
r(693);

. graph export 123456789012345678901.wmf
(file 123456789012345678901.wmf written in Windows Metafile format)

. graph export "1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 0 1 .wmf"
error creating metafile
r(693);

. graph export "1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 0 1.wmf"
(file 1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 0 1 .wmf written in Windows Metafile format)

This problem does not exist in Windows 98. I do not know if the
Windows XP problem was introduced with the latest update or if
existed previously. Stata 8 can export graphs in EMF, PNG, PS or EPS
format with filenames longer than 21 characters in Windows XP.
