Dear Statalisters,

how can I truncate the first levels of the folder path where I want to load or save datasets in Stata 7 (for Windows)?

I am using Stata on two different computers with a very similar folder structure. It looks about like: "...\MyFiles\Dissertation\dataanalysis\.."
but the first three or four path levels are different due to the folder structure of the operating system.

I remember that in an older version (4 or 5) of Stata there was a simple command that made Stata search for the appropriate path. But I can't find anything in the help files or at stata.com.

It's always a dull work to change all do-files that I have saved on the other computer when I want to use them on the second.

Thank you!

Dietrich.
