Dear Mr. Wolfe, I don't know if this helps, but try this: there is a file in ADO\BASE\_ that is called _fr_runlog.ado Back-up this file to a safe place and then edit it to have compound quotes (`" "' instead of " ") everywhere in that file. For some reason this file quotes the strings in regular quotes. I had other troubles because of this, but I had no permission to change the system file, so had to find a workaround. A question to Stata, Corp. Was it intended to be single quotes in that file, or could it be compound quotes in the next version? I am not sure if this will fix your problem, Mr. Wolfe, but if it fails, I guess you can open the .gph file in any HEX editor and replace the % sign to any "safe" symbol manually, and then try to read the file again. I would also recommend to restore the modified _fr_runlog.ado after you are done.
