Suzy:
I am not familiar with the -graph2tex- command, what I usually do is
export the graph to an eps file with the -graph export- command, and
in my LaTeX file use LaTeX commands like the one you have showed. I
have never experienced problems with those. One thing I could imagine
is that -graph2tex- saves in the current directory (type -cd- to find
out were that is) and you try to call it from a LaTeX file located in
another directory. If you include a graphic in LaTeX without specifying
a path it assumes that it is in the same directory.
HTH,

I am now trying to convert and insert a simple Stata graph using the
graph2tex command. This is my Stata code below. I copied and pasted the
tex code output provided by Stata into my text editor (teXnicCenter).
The graph was not there. I tried adding the .eps to Stata1 to see if
that would work, but it did not.

scatter Yvar Xvar, sort

. graph2tex, epsfile(Stata1)
% exported graph to Stata1.eps
