Alfonso Miranda Caso Luengo <Alfonso.Miranda-Caso-Luengo@warwick.ac.uk> asks about using the Stata Journal LaTeX file with MiKTeX: > I hope somebody can help me with the SW3.0 issue (Many thanks to Nick for > his rapid response!)

JAYESH KUMAR <jayesh@igidr.ac.in> replied with > As in any tex compilation it is required that after running the source file > (.tex file), you run the bibtex once and then run the tex file twice to get > the final output with correctly displaced bibliography. > For example: > step 1: latex main > step 2: bibtex main > step 3: latex main > step 4: latex main In order for the above instructions to work, you must change the following line in main.tex from \include{readme} to \input{readme} DETAILS ------------------------------------------------------------------------------ \include{readme} in main.tex will (among other things) cause LaTeX to create readme.aux, and put the bibliographic information in there instead of main.aux. \input{readme} in main.tex will only cause LaTeX to input the contents of readme.tex for its consumption. When you run bibtex main BibTeX will look at the bibliographic instructions in main.aux, and modify main.aux accordingly so that the next LaTeX run will pick up the needed information to build the bibliography section. This is the reason why the instructions for the Stata Journal latex files at http://www.stata-journal.com/author/ give the following steps: latex main bibtex readme latex main latex main The above change I suggest, using \input{} instead of \include{} will cause LaTeX to put the bibliographic information in main.aux instead of readme.aux. Scientific Word 3.0 ------------------------------------------------------------------------------ Porting the Stata Journal document class to Scientific Word should not be difficult, however we found it to be so. One of the problems with Scientific Word (and Workplace) arises from how they implement their extensions. They appear to place all calls to specialty macros in comments (something easily overcome), and we could not find the LaTeX source needed in order to perform a standard LaTeX run (for example, using MiKTeX). --Jeff jpitblado@stata.com * * For searches and help try: * http://www.stata.com/support/faqs/res/findit.html * http://www.stata.com/support/statalist/faq * http://www.ats.ucla.edu/stat/stata/
