Hello Martie,

May I suggest you read the help file, by typing:

help wbopendata

There are some examples of fully functional syntaxes which can be used
as demo (at the bottom of the help file, as it is the usual practice
in Stata help modules).

Examples

        . wbopendata, country(chn - China) clear

        . wbopendata, language(en - English) topics(2 - Aid Effectiveness) clear

        . wbopendata, language(en - English) indicator(ag.agr.trac.no
- Agricultural machinery, tractors) clear

        . wbopendata, language(en - English) indicator(ag.agr.trac.no
- Agricultural machinery, tractors) long clear

Please notice that you need an active internet connection for
wbopendata to work.

Best,

JP
