I never encountered that and all my old do-file back to Stata 7 still produce identical graphs and results. That's puzzling, I can't help then... As a quick workaround you could reinstall Stata 8; there are no conflicts between the two and they run smoothly next to each other on the same PC.

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, 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.
