Regarding Ann Fitzmaurice's problem with choosing the right version of
Stata to run a do-file to extract DHS data:

Ann, my apologies if this answer is stating the obvious and you've
tried this already:

Are you are running the do file from outside Stata?  If so, open Stata
SE and run the do file from the file menu.   It always works for me....

I no longer have two versions of Stata on my machine but I did at one
point.  I don't remember that it caused problems, but I do recall that
my machine looked for the networked version 7 before my locally
installed version 8- which could have caused a problem when trying to
run do files from outside Stata.

Hope that helps,
Emma

Good morning

I have downloaded data from the dhs website - and am trying to open the
data
using stata- I have both stata 7 and stata8se on this machine, when I
run
the do file which extract the data it defaults to using stata 7 and of
course runs out of room for the variables, I want the default to be
stata8se
and I realise that I can increase the maximum number of variables (the
reason for having stata8se) - can anyone help re how to extract the
data so
that the program used is stata8se not stata7

Thanks
