Raphael,

Your Stata command contains square brackets. Are the brackets
captured with the following command?

  $dofile = WinGetTitle("")

If so, you have to add these lines to your AutoIt script, after you
remove the "TextPad - " string from the $dofile variable:

  $dofile = StringReplace($dofile,"[","")
  $dofile = StringReplace($dofile,"]","")
