Generally good advice, but Philippe overlooks one important tool: - adoupdate-, which does for SSC, SJ and other user-written materials what -update- does for official Stata. Shehzad should do

adoupdate

and see what it says about the currency of the various packages he has installed. -adoupdate- cannot determine that a SSC package is an update for an installed SJ package, so that might not be helpful w.r.t. -glcurve- in particular, but it is a good idea to use the command to determine whether you have the latest SSC version.

- -glcurve- is not an official command, but a user-written package (by Stephen Jenkins and myself), so it is not picked up by -update query-. Use -adoupdate- instead. The general advice when you use user-written software is to look for the source and make sure you have the most recent updates -- with several sources available (SJ, STB, SSC, personal pages) not always as easy as with official Stata commands, I admit.

In short, an -ssc install glcurve, replace- should resolve your problem.
