The responses so far have taught me a lot.  My two cents is that there is
a unix program that can convert an eps file to a jpg or perhaps other file
formats as well.  I imagine Adobe Illustrator and the other programs may
be able to do the same.  I only point this out to suggest there is a way
to move across at least some filetypes, such that one is not necessarily
trapped with the one stata writes.  Thus, if WORD won't read eps files,
maybe you can convert it.  I routinely conver eps files to jpg to embed in
WordPerfect documents.  Then, when the printer needs it, I can give them
eps or jpg or perhaps other formats as well.

Hope this helps.
