The .bat file should work, but I think you can skip that
step as long as your command is of the form:

  C:\Stata10\wstata.exe do mydofile.do

Note the "do". It's also easier to tinker with the scheduled tasks
if you go to File->New to create the task rather than use the
wizard.

hth,
Jeph

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?

I think you want the OS to do this, not Stata. You
don't say what your OS is, in Linux see -at-, in
XP use the scheduler (Start->Accessories->System Tools
-> Scheduled Tasks on my setup, but yours may vary).

I don't know about a Mac, though I assume OS X has a
command line version of -at-.

hope this helps,
Jeph

Hi All,
Is there a way to have a do-file or program run at a given clock-time
every day, automatically?
I can think of a kluge, whereby the program is infinitely looping, and
if c(current_time) fits the desired criteria, the process runs.
I'm wondering if there is a more sane way to achieve this result?
Thanks in advance,
Dan
