I think this did not go through earlier

	Hi Mark,
	I have tried that also. The problem with this route is that if I download a .hlp file, it gives the save option. However, if I click download by selecting, say, xtabond2.ado, it directly opens this file in the browser. Then I am forced to save it, open it again with notepad and do the save as procedure.
	I am still at a loss.  Also, the comp I am using has StataSE, which was purchased just a couple of weeks ago.
	Thanks again,
	Jeffry

		I recommend trying a direct download from RePEc, e.g., for ivreg2:
		
		http://ideas.repec.org/c/boc/bocode/s425401.html
		
		and use the download buttons.  I have a feeling it might be the pass
		through the browser and notepad that is messing up the contents of
		the files.
