I'm trying to use the stcmd in order to transfer a data set to Limdep.
I've tryied the different syntaxes below with no success. A blue window
rapidly pops-up, but no files are created.
Any help will be much appreciated.

stcmd d:\data\entrep.dta  d:\data\entrep.lpj 
stcmd d:\data\entrep.dta  d:\data\entrep.lpj /o /s
outputst c:\data\entrep.lpj

Use the -stcmd- package, downloadable from SSC. The -stcmd- package 
contains 3 programs, -stcmd-, -inputst- and -outputst-. If you install the 
-stcmd- package, and type in Stata

stcmd c:\data\data.xls c:\data\data.dta /o /y

then StatTransfer will copy c:\data\data.xls to c:\data\data.dta. 
Alternatively, you can type

inputst c:\data\data.xls

and StatTransfer will copy c:\data\data.xls into the memory. You can then

save c:\data\data.dta, replace

and Stata will save the data in memory to the disk file c:\data\data.xls 

I hope this helps.

Best wishes
