Alfonso seems to have an older version of the Stata Journal LaTeX files but is
using the current release of MiKTeX.  The current version of -sjlatex- is

	. which sjlatex
	*! version 1.2.0 12nov2003

If Alfonso has an older version, he should first get the current version of

	. ado uninstall sjlatex
	. net from
	. net install sjlatex

Then he can get the current release of the Stata Journal LaTeX files

	. sjlatex install using myarticle

and move the rest of his article files into the new directory 'myarticle' (on
a Windows machine the above command will most likely put the files in
c:\DATA\myarticle\ unless Alfonso has changed Stata's working directory using
