Thanks. I already tried that and it isn't a Drive issue.  I appears to be an issue with the Data and I was hoping someone would be familiar with the Data from IPUMS and any associated problems.

As you say, Stata can't find the file you name. I don't think we can do anything except advise that you check the name and/or search for it on your C: drive.


Ferro,Gabrielle A

I received data from IPUMS and am attempting to open in STATA.  Below is the .do file I am using.  It can not recognize the file, I am hoping someone will be able to point me in the right direction.  I have double-checked the directory and it is correct.
The Error message that I receive is below the .do file.  Thank you in advance for any help.
