Hi,

Try creating a .bat file to call stata and run the do file and then run the
.bat file it with the scheduler. 
It should work. This worked for me..

Steps

1. Open notepad or whatever text editor and enter the following,  ammended
suitably to fit your setup

Start/w C:\Progra~1\Stata10\wsestata.exe  do "C:\paper4\myprogram.do"

2. Then use the windows scheduler in Winxp to run the bat file, which in
turn calls up stata and runs the do file

Hope this helps
rajesh

This is helpful.  My OS is Windows XP.  I'm trying to tinker with the
properties of the scheduled task  to get it to work... right now all
it does is pass the name of the do-file to stata in quotes, and Stata
responds by saying that it's not a valid command.  Does anyone know of
a way around this?
