Thanks to Shannon (and Derek Wagner of Stata who responded off-list).  As
guessed, I was opening up old stata7 graphs and needed to use the oldgprefs
dialog box.  Steve

It sounds as if you may be using the old Stata 7 style graphs (-graph7-).
If this is the case, you may need to change the clipboard settings the way
you did in Stata 7.  To bring up the dialog to do so, you can type

	. oldgprefs

In the resulting dialog, click on the Clipboard tab and then select the
scheme that you would like to use.  After that, click OK.

Now, create a graph and click on the Graph window.  You can now either click
on Edit -> Copy Graph or simply press Ctrl+C to copy the graph to the
clipboard.

Finally, in Word, or in whatever application you wish to paste the graph,
click on Edit -> Paste or press Ctrl+V to paste the graph.

If this does not work and you continue to have problems, please email
Stata's Technical Services for support.  You can send an email to
tech-support@stata.com.  We will be glad to assist.
