Thanks Nick, -file- appears to be the answer. Memories of Fortran, Pascal, Algol 68 et al. come flooding back! One further question - I would tend to believe that writing to files is probably used by programmers in Stata (you may disagree). Would it be an idea to have a cross reference to the -log- command from -file- (and vice-versa) in the Stata Help facility?
