Dear Statalisters,

I am running Stata on different PC's. Is there a way that Stata knows from which PC it is running and changes the directory accordingly. To be more specific I would like to to the following:

if currentPC==PC1 {
cd "C:\Users\a123"
}
if currentPC==PC2 {
cd "C:\Users\b456"
}
if currentPC==PC3 {
cd "C:\Users\c789"
}
...


where Stata should find out which PC I am using and set the right directory.

Any advice would be greatly appreciated.
