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

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
Unfortunately, -stcmd- gives no error diagnostics (I don't know how to get these from StatTransfer). I can therefore only guess what is going wrong. You might like to check your copy of -stcmd.ado- (usually stored in the STBPLUS . It should have a line saying something like

shell "C:\Program Files\StatTransfer7\st" `0' ;

The expression in quotes should be the path of the program file -st- in your StatTransfer folder (which will usually be a sub-folder of "Program Files" under Windows 98). If it isn't, then you should change it.

I hope this helps.
