What directory did you put them in?

Is it listed in the directories that Stata is looking which is shown
by -adopath-

If you've not placed them in one of the directories listed by
-adopath- then Stata will not be able to run your do-file because it
doesn't know where you put it, and why should it, you could have a 2Tb
hard-drive with hundreds of thousands of directories, or even network
drives attached to your computer.  Stata can't possibly be expected to
search through everything to look for where you have saved your own
