Daniel,
Thanks for the support. Unfortunatelly, I have the version 8 cdrom back in
France.
Have a nice day.
Amadou.

 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.
