Re: st: Displaying within Stata version 8 graphs that were generated in Stata version 10 |

You probably will have to move to Stata 10 for the Mac. I can think of just one possible remedy that involves some trade-offs and may not work, but it would be easy to find out.

Stata 10 will still create graphs in the old version 7 format. This format has its uses because the graphs appear instantaneously (and I like some of the features. Scatters for example have an easily obtained box option that shows the degree of skewness for each variable).

Then you could see if version 8 for the Mac will open these graphs. In case you want to try this, the start of a command is "gr7 (is a colon necessary after the 7? I don't have my version 7 manuals here). While this may work, the version 7 graph commands differ from those in version 8 and the help files for version 7 graphs probably were rudimentary in the version 8 you have at home. But if you still have your old version manuals, and this works, you would have a work around.

This might be your only option short of purchasing version 10 if it works.

Hi. I have Stata version 8.2 on my Mac. However I have to work on a dataset in a lab where there is only Stata version 10 on a PC. At the lab, I ran a do-file with the version command (i.e. "version 8") right at the beginning of the do-file, and in the do-file I generated some graphs. When I tried to "graph use" the graphs that I had generated in the lab (i.e. using Stata version 10 on a PC) at home (i.e. using Stata version 8.2 on a Mac) however, I got the following error message: ----- file /Users/me/YRSEDU_yrinsho.gph is a new format that this version of Stata does not know how to read suggestion: type -update query- r(610); ----- I typed "update query" and the information was that my version of Stata version 8 is updated. Is there a way for me to generate live-format graphs using Stata Version 10 on a PC, which I can later on display and modify etc using Stata Version 8 on a Mac ? I know that if one wants to run a command under a specific version of Stata, one can use the "version #" command. But I did use the "version" command at the top of the do-file which generated the graphs, and still I can't even display the graphs using my Stata version 8. Can someone help me please ?
