Hi,

Many thanks for your answer. I have put a cd "" on the top of the do
file before running the code, so basically, I shouldn't have the
problem. The folder I am saving is a sub directory in "My Documents",
that is "My Documents/Data".

But when I right-clik on the Data folder to check its properties, I
see that folder is read-only. I remove the read-only button check and
re-run the stata code, but when I check again later the folder turns
back to "read-only". Very frustrating !!!
I am the owner of the laptop. I have administrator rights, so I do not
know what to do else.

Thanks for your time.

Amadou.
