Hi, users, 

   I am new to the package wbopendata, can someone tell me why i cannot execuate the following code?

    sysuse world-d, clear

  i was trying to run the following example program, which can be find if you type "help wbopendata"

        tempfile tmp
        wbopendata, language(en - English) indicator(it.cel.sets.p2) long clear latest
        sort countrycode
        save `tmp', replace
        sysuse world-d, clear
        merge countrycode using `tmp'
        sum year
        local avg = string(`r(mean)',"%16.1f")
        spmap  it_cel_sets_p2 using "world-c.dta", id(_id)                                  ///
                clnumber(20) fcolor(Reds2) ocolor(none ..)                                  ///
                title("Mobile cellular subscriptions (per 100 people)", size(*1.2))         ///
                legstyle(3) legend(ring(1) position(3))                                     ///
                note("Source: World Development Indicators (latest available year: `avg') in ///
                Azevedo, J.P. (2011) wbopendata: Stata module to " "access World Bank databases, ///
                Statistical Software Components S457234 Boston College Department of Economics.", size(*.7))

by execuate "sysuse dir", we find the following system data files: 

  auto.dta        cancer.dta      educ99gdp.dta   network1a.dta   sandstone.dta   tsline2.dta     xtline1.dta
  autornd.dta     census.dta      gnp96.dta       nlsw88.dta      sp500.dta       uslifeexp.dta
  bplong.dta      citytemp.dta    lifeexp.dta     nlswide1.dta    surface.dta     uslifeexp2.dta
  bpwide.dta      citytemp4.dta   network1.dta    pop2000.dta     tsline1.dta     voter.dta

There is no such a file named "world-d.dta", but why?
