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-
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. 
Good habit to define the graph with a do-file. The obvious
solution, I think, is to re-run that do-file on your Mac.
Potential problem: You may not have access to the data 
behind the graph on your Mac. That problem can not be 
solved from this distance.
Hope you find a workable solution.
