st: graph export; path problem |

Dear all, I have a problem with the "graph export" command in Stata 12 and hope that = somebody might be able to help (I am not sure whether I asked this question= before but could not find it in the archive. I know that I had the same pr= oblem in another project. So - I apologize if this question was answered so= me time ago): I defined the following macros to match the structure of my project folder: global pp=3D"/Project A/00_Stata" // define path to new project here withou= t drive letter global gd=3D"X:$pp/graphres" I generate a contour plot and save it with the saving option: ......, ... saving("$gd/contour_rr2.gph, replace") This all works fine. Later on in my do-file I have the following code: graph use "$gd/contour_rr2.gph" This also works fine i.e. the graph window with the graph opens correctly. = But now the problem starts. I want to save this graph as an .emf-file with = the following code: graph export using `"${gd}/contour_rr2.emf"', replace Stata gives me an error message: invalid '"X:/Project A/00_Stata/graphres/contour_rr2.emf' r(198);=A8 It seems that there is a problem with the quotes but I have no clue where t= he problem is/how to resolve it ... When displaying the path in the graph export command Stata displays the cor= rect path . dis `"${gd}/contour_rr2.emf"' X:/Project A/00_Stata/graphres/contour_rr2.emf Thanks for any help Sven Trelle p.s. right-clicking on the graph in the graph window to save it as an .emf-= file works without any problems. * * For searches and help try: * http://www.stata.com/help.cgi?search * http://www.stata.com/support/faqs/resources/statalist-faq/ * http://www.ats.ucla.edu/stat/stata/
