Hi -

I tried this command:
unzipfile "http://www2.census.gov/census_2010/03-Demographic_Profile_with_SF1geos/Alabama/al20101.dp.zip";, replace
and got this error message:

cannot open http://www2.census.gov/census_2010/03-Demographic_Profile_with_SF1ge
> os/Alabama/al20101.dp.zip or http://www2.census.gov/census_2010/03-Demographic
> _Profile_with_SF1geos/Alabama/al20101.dp.zip.zip
could not perform unzip
r(601);

I am totally stumped.  Any ideas why this wouldn't work?

Thanks,
David
