Thanks Martin for the pointer -- case closed!

I had installed the newest -esttab- version 2.0.5 on my directory on
the server but using -adopath- I now see that Stata called an older
version 1.4.0 elsewhere on the server.  Should have seen this before,
thanks very much, also to Ben for this lifesaver piece of work!

The happy ending: I now use profile.do to set add my personal ado
directory to the top of the pecking order with -adopath ++
[directory]- and will ask my admin to update the ados on the server's
common directory.

Cheers,
Bert
