Works fine for me.
I produced a graph in Stata and then exported it as an -eps- file:

graph export "$reports\hdist.eps", as(eps) replace

The following -tex- file was reads this -eps- file OK.  I'm using MikTex
2.7.  This assumes that the -eps- file is in the same directory as the
-tex- file.

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
a LaTeX listserve, I apologize) read .wmf files?
