Thanks for your comments, Mike, but I'm afraid the problem is still there. Getting to your questions: - Both versions are abolutely up-to-date, using update all and update swap afterwards. - I entered exactly the same commands on both computers. Up to the last comma, parenthesis, line continuation sign. - I did not copy the command code in my previous email, defiying, the FAQ's, because I did not consider it essential to the problem that lcolor does not work in any case. But here is one example: . twoway (line difftosynth_10000 year, lcolor(black)) (line difftosynth_65 year, lcolor(gs12)) option lcolor() not allowed r(198); It does not work in a simpler case, either: . twoway line difftosynth_10000 year, lcolor(black) option lcolor() not allowed r(198); - Again, all of these very same commands work on that other computer running WinXP. - Now that I am trying, here's another thing that does never work: lpattern(): . twoway line difftosynth_10000 year, lpattern(dash) option lpattern() not allowed r(198); I have no clue at this point. Thanks for any suggestions, once again. Davide Cantoni On Aug 15, 2007, at 10:28 AM, Michael Hanson wrote: In my experience, the purported Mac vs. PC aspect of your problem is a red herring. More likely, one of the two following situations exist: 1. You have not entered *exactly* the same commands on both computers. The error you report can be caused by a misplaced comma or parentheses, or possibly by forgetting a line continuation (such as "///") -- all of which are difficult to spot with the unaided eye. Relatedly, you have not followed the advice of the Statalist FAQ: "Say exactly what you typed and exactly what Stata typed (or did) in response. N.B. exactly!" To reiterate: *exactly*! 2. Your version of Stata is not completely up-to-date on your Mac, relative to the PC you tried. Type -update all- and follow the advice given. Don't forget to "swap" the executable if instructed to do so. (That is, launch the new Stata program that is placed in your /Applications/Stata folder -- don't keep running the outdated one.) A less-than-complete update could create an environment in which standard commands produce non-standard results or errors. Hope this helps. -- Mike * * For searches and help try: * http://www.stata.com/support/faqs/res/findit.html * http://www.stata.com/support/statalist/faq * http://www.ats.ucla.edu/stat/stata/
