No; this isn't entirely correct. You can place your own directories ahead of Stata's, although I think Kit and I will agree that this is not only an extraordinarily bad idea but also most unlikely to be the explanation in this case.

He is quite correct; if you modified the default -adopath- by adding your own directories at the beginning, you could occlude official Stata's search for commands implemented in the ado-file language (but not built-in commands). As Nick says, this would be a Very Bad Idea, and unlikely to have bearing on the poster's problem with -histogram-. In some prior postings it has been stated by StataCorp staff that a cause for such aberrant behavior on Stata's part has, in their experience, often been caused by 'bootleg' copies of the software. Not that this is likely the case in this instance, but it can cause this sort of behavior.
