Dear All,

I have tried for days to get my rundo executable to
run using AutoIt but to no avail. I keep getting this
error:

. do "[G:\hosmer\ex\chp1\1a.do]"
file [G:\hosmer\ex\chp1\1a.do] not found
r(601);
 
I believe there is some small adjustment in the code
that I simply cannot locate. Here is my rundo.au3
code, can anyone tell me what's wrong here:

; AutoIt v3 script to run a Stata do-file from an
external text editor: rundo.au3.
; Friedrich Huebler (huebler@newschool.edu), 15 July
2004.
; Adapted from an AutoIt script by Dimitriy V.
Masterov
; (dvmaster@lily.src.uchicago.edu), sent to Statalist
on 23 June 2004
;
(http://www.stata.com/statalist/archive/2004-06/msg00699.html).
; AutoIt is available at
http://www.autoitscript.com/autoit3/.

; Declare variables (NOTE: edit if necessary before
script is compiled)
Global $statapath, $statawin, $dofile
$statapath = "D:/Program Files/Stata8/wsestata.exe"
$statawin = "Stata/SE 8.2"

; Reduce SendKeyDelay and WinWaitDelay to speed up
script
Opt("SendKeyDelay", 1)
Opt("WinWaitDelay", 200)

; Get path of do-file from title of EmEditor window
; NOTE: Modify for other editors
$dofile = WinGetTitle("")
; Remove "TextPad - " string from window title
$dofile = StringReplace($dofile,"TextPad - ","")

If WinExists($statawin) Then
  WinActivate($statawin)
  WinWaitActive($statawin)
  ; Activate Stata Command window
  Send("^4")
  ; Double quotes around $dofile are needed in case
path contains blanks
  ControlSend($statawin,"Stata
Command","RICHEDIT1","do " & '"' & $dofile & '"' &
"{Enter}")
Else
  Run($statapath)
  WinWaitActive($statawin)
  ; Activate Stata Command window
  Send("^4")
  ; Double quotes around $dofile are needed in case
path contains blanks
  ControlSend($statawin,"Stata
Command","RICHEDIT1","do " & '"' & $dofile & '"' &
"{Enter}")
EndIf
