Hi Daniel,

I forgot to mention that.
I issued version 8.2 at the top. But it still crashed at the graph commands.
That's what puzzled me.
Amadou.

 Amadou,                                                                         
                                                                                 
 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.
