Jo has already gotten lots of good advice from the list. Some of that
advice, however, as been of the form of "do this and hope" and then

Here's my advice:

1. From what Jo says, it appears that somehow Stata's official
ado-files got erased or that Jo or some system administrator
made some change in Stata's parameters so that Stata can no

Jo, that no matter what happens, we have a plan on how to deal with it.

I work for StataCorp so now I am required to add, since you are running Stata
9, that now might be a good time to consider upgrading to Stata 10, Jo.
