Bayard should make sure he has installed the latest executable update
(dated September 9, 2003).  I do not know for sure whether it will fix
Bayard's problem.  However, it is always a good idea to make sure you
are fully up to date when encountering a problem like this, on the chance
that the problem has been fixed in an update.  For Bayard's problem
in particular, there were some changes to Stata's EPS code in the
latest update that very well may fix the problem he is having.  From
-help whatsnew- from the September 9 update:

18.  EPS files produced by graph export did not print properly when placed
     in some Adobe applications such as PageMaker and InDesign, although
     they would print and could be viewed by other applications; this has
     been fixed.

This sounds similar to the problem Bayard is describing.

If Bayard continues to experience this problem even after installing
the latest update, he should contact Stata Technical Support at
tech-support@stata.com who will lead him through several steps to
hopefully diagnose whether the problem is with Stata or with something
on his computer.
