Well, it is not "my" epspdf program, but part of the package. I
operate in the same environment as you, and have never had a problem getting
Stata graphs into pdfs and then into a LaTeX document. Whether Tex supports
jpg or not is none of our business, as you rightly say. I do believe that
pdflatex can process them... Anyway, here is my template to turn Stata
graphs into pdf...

// to export graphs

// path to folder
local path "C:/Users/`c(username)'/Desktop"

// get your graph
// sysuse auto, clear
// sc pr we

// settings for eps, see -help eps_options-
// graph set eps mag 300
// graph set eps orientation landscape
//for inclusion in dvi
gr export `path'\mygraph.eps, as(eps) preview(off) replace

//pdf export with MIKTEX utility
//!epstopdf `path'\mygraph.eps

//same with ps
gr export `path'\, as(ps) replace
capt erase mygraph.pdf
!ps2pdf `path'\
!start `path'\mygraph.pdf

capt erase

//save in Stata format as well
gr save `path'\mygraph.gph, replace

Betreff: st: Stata graphs in LaTeX

I am using Stata 10.1 fully updated in a Windows environment (Vista).

I do not believe my LaTeX software (or is it my computer) is .eps
compatible.  While Michael Mitchell's graph2tex runs great in Stata it
produces .eps files which my LaTeX can't read.

I try running Martin Weiss' epspdf program but I get an error from
GhostScript that filesize must be less than 2Gb.

Why doesn't Stata export .jpg files?  Or why can't LaTeX (I know this isn't
a LaTeX listserve, I apologize) read .wmf files?
