Dear Sven, I see two problems with your code: 1) the option replace must be specified outside of the quotes: saving("$gd/contour_rr2.gph", replace) not saving("$gd/contour_rr2.gph, replace") 2) graph export command must be followed by the file name, WITHOUT the using prefix. With both fixed, your code should work.
