Hmmm,

Not sure what the problem is. There are two basic approaches I use, both of which work well for me and ought to work for you.

(1) For the occasional, one-off graph or two.

Generate the graph in Stata.

Then copy it to the Windows Clipboard (either right-click then select "Copy Graph" OR select Edit-Copy Graph from the menu, OR press Ctrl-C with the Graph Window highlighted)

Then paste the graph in Word (either Edit-Paste or Ctrl-V).

(2) For more than one graph--the Stata side of this can be automated.

Generate the graph in Stata.

Save it to disk in a format Word can handle--either .PNG, .WMF, or .EMF. (Or .eps though then you sometimes can't actually see it in Word, though it will print on a postscript printer). Do this with -graph export-

e.g.:

. graph twoway scatter mpg price

. graph export mpgprice.emf

Then use Insert-Picture-From File in Word to insert the graph.

Hi listers,--------------------------------------------------------

Thanks to Mitchell's great book, I have made a lot of nice Stata graphs at home today. However, having read all the advice I could get in the Statalist Archives and using -findit-, I still have not come up with a sollotion that let me see my Stata graphs within a Word or PP document. I have tried everything from a simple copy-past to saving the graphs in all the availebla formats.

I use Windows XP (at home); maybe it wil work om my office Windows 2000 tomorrow?

In the meantime, any advice is appreciated.
