thank you so much, Nick. It works. Correct, my OS is MS Windows. 

Below is what I put into my "" - it may help other people. 



* Luca's menu: link to my notes
window menu clear
window menu append submenu "stUser" "Luca"
window menu append item "Luca" "notes" "winexec C:\Programmi\Microsoft Office\Office12\WINWORD.EXE E:\Stats\_Stata_myNotes.docx"
window menu refresh

the -winexec- command. Nick On Sat, Oct 29, 2011 at 5:48 PM, Luca Campanelli <> wrote: > I'd like to add a link in the User menu of Stata12 to an external file (for example a PDF file or a microsoft word file with my notes).
