I assume that the update of the datafile is not done by Stata? If it were, then whatever .do or .ado file that does the update could end with a command to call you .ado that you currently run in the morning.

If the process that updates the data is called from a batch file, maybe the batch file could have a command at the end that calls stata and directs it to run the .ado.

But if the data update is done by someone else, and just "appears" at some time, then, maybe you could use an operating system scheduling program to run Stata nd the .ado file at some appropriately late (or early morning) time. In windows the Task Scheduler or somesuch should be able to do that; others can speak for other O/S.

Hello List,

    I'm wondering if anyone could help me with this. I use a data set which
gets updated each night (file name does not change, only the data changes).
I need to create some results based on this data which other people use in
the next morning. I have an .ado file which does that but I need to run it
manually each morning. Is there any way to automate the ado file so that the
ado file will run on a specific time? Do I need to use another application
that will call Stata and run the ado file. I'm wondering if anyone has done
anything like this. Any suggestion will be highly appreciated.
