Hi ,

I was wondering if it is possible for Stata to start a log file in the dropbox.
Many time, when I start long jobs(which might take hours), It  might
be great if I can check output from my smart phone.With this in mind,
I started a log file in my drop box account. My code is as follows

I am using Stata 12 .
Platform: Windows 7

capture log close
cd "C:/Users/mike/Dropbox/_stata_output"
log using stata.log,replace

The log file starts after the above set of commands are issued but it
doesn't get updated .

I always see the following output

      name:  <unnamed>
       log:  C:\Users\mike\Dropbox\_stata_output\stata.log
  log type:  text
 opened on:  26 Dec 2013, 20:43:39
end of do-file

Any ideas thought are welcome.

Thank you very much for your time.

Thank you ,
Yours Sincerely,
