insert -version 8.2- at the beginning of your do-files and everything will work in Stata 9 as it did in Stata 8.2.

I have a problem.
I was running an old code today and it crashed. All the graph commands
are not working.

Previsously, with stata se 8.2, the program worked perfect.
In the mean time, I desinstall version 8.2 for version 9 and now 9.1 to gain
some space.

I went ahead and put a // in front of all my graph commands (kdensity, twoway,
graph...). The second problem I discover was that compared to my previous
results, stata 9.1 provides results with are differents in the decimal points
(for example, 42.84% of poverty rate and now 42.12%). I did not change anything
to the code except "cd" and "//".

What happens if a stata program is deeply modified (say, by updates through ssc
archives or by StataCorp)? Especially for reproductibility issues?

Best regards.
