It means that the file "" does not exist in your
current directory.

The way to do this is to create a .do file that does 
whatever you want to do, and store that .do file. This 
means that it has a name and is located in some directory.
Use -cd- to change your current directory to that directory.
Than use -do, nostop- to run your .do file. 
However, the part should ofcourse be replaced by
the name you used to for your .do file. However, I repeat
my earlier point that you should not use the -nostop- 
option, it is dangerous.

Hope this helps,
