When I use Stata to examine user sites that other people havecreated Idon't have any problems. I have read the Stata help file for creating a user site (http://www.stata.com/help.cgi?usersite) I have also looked at some posts to the statalist for help (http://www.stata.com/statalist/archive/2008-02/msg00294.html)Mark Lunt was also kind enough to verify for me that the files canbe seenwith wget.

!curl -o "gss2002.dta" "http://jeremyr.myweb.uga.edu/gss2002.dta";

Unfortunately, I haven't been able to figure out why Stata does notsee thefiles I have posted on my site. Any idea what is wrong?

When Sergiy states in his reply:

1) I don't have troubles accessing your files from Stata (for example, the average age of 1496 observations in your sample is 46.20655). Perhaps the problem is already resolved on your end, but make sure that you are using the proper version of Stata, e.g. if the files were created in Stata 10 or 11, don't try to open them in Stata 9.

Perhaps the problem is already resolved on your end, but make sure that you are using the proper version of Stata, e.g. if the files were created in Stata 10 or 11, don't try to open them in Stata 9. 2) If the problem still persists, check if the view command can show you the files' contents. Also check your proxy settings. 3) Finally, there could be separate file repositories for internal and external access. (E.g. users within your network will see the files differently compared to the users from outside, hence you may need to upload twice each file). You may need to consult your site admin on this.
