It just occured to me that only a single batch job can be run at a time. Because running two batch jobs simultaneously means opening two stata instances simultaneously and that is not allowed. The project is producing charts for the dashboard (for a single or a multiple users logging simultaneously) which currently doesn't have charts. So, the  idea is the developer will call my command(to create charts) in a batch mode in respond to the arguments passed by single or a multiple users. I  think if there is a single user, then it won't be a problem because only one instance of stata will be run. Howerver, if there are multiple users using the dashboard simultaneously, multiple batches have to be run simultaneously to create charts. I am not sure if that is doable? Could someone with similar experience add or elaborate on this?? I am also aware that, I need to be able to create a unique file name for each chart I create for unique arguments passed. I do have an idea to resolve !
 the latter by having the filename its arugments. So, if a user passes arguments firm(93619) metric(aver) date(2011), i will have an image saved as `firm'`metric'`date'. Any link, help or idea will be highly appreciated. 

Thanks ,
