Thanks, Phil. This is a MUCH better strategy. I really appreciate your help.

One thing: I can't seem to get your textmate code running. I know the
Stata TM bundle posted here works (except for the local macro
problem): When I
replaced the existing send selection to stata code with the code you
provided, nothing happens (I reloaded the bundle). I thought it might
have to do with how the program is called up, but I'm really not sure.

This is the original command code to send the selection to stata:

osascript -e "tell application \"Stata\"
open POSIX file \"\"
end tell"

You seem to call up stata using a different method:

tell application id "com.stata.stata11"

I don't know enough about the scripting to know how to diagnose the problem.

Any thoughts?
