Hi,

I was wondering if you might be able to help me?

I am trying to submit a command in a number of stages.

Basically i want stata to ask me a question, then i want to key the response, and then i want stata to run a program. It sounds a little pointless but i am trying read in 3000 odd data files plot them and then trim the file to the relevant section.

eg.
di "What is the first day of data collection?"
Type 3
di "Day of first data collection = 3"
drop if day<3

I am wondering if this is possible.

i am using stata version 9.2

Many thanks
Adrian
