Thank you Nick and Roger. Both ways are fine for me.

The help for -smcl- gives a solution:
{stata args[:text]} (syntaxes 3 & 4) {stata} displays text as a link that will execute the Stata command args in the
Results window. Stata will first ask before executing the command that is
displayed in a web browser. If args (the Stata command) contains a colon, remember
to enclose the command in quotes.

Perhaps {stata webuse nlswork2, clear} will work better?

I try to use {stata use
http://www.stata-press.com/data/r9/nlswork2, clear}


in a Stata help file to establish a hyper-link executable
command. However,


the ":" symbol in it stops me to do so.
