I can't follow this.

First off, you start with an error report but you don't say what you
typed before that.

Second, you don't explain how you copied the files.

Third, I am looking at SSC where the files have exactly the names I
specified. If your unnamed source has the extra extension .mht, or
your unnamed software somehow added the extension .mht, then, as I
said, you must remove that extra extension.

Fourth, the extension .ado should occur once. You don't explain why
your file is called .ado.ado.

Fifth, I did recommend using the subdirectory p, not as you have done.

In order to overcome the problem I have copied two files related to the programme: pgmhaz8_ado.mht and pgmhaz8_||_ado.mht and want to place them in the stata directory so that I can work with pgmhaz. My question is where should I place these files in the stata directory? Or is there any other solution to my problem? I work in an environment where a connection to the Internet is forbidden.
