How to add the DASP submenu to Stata’s main menu?

With STATA 9.0, sub menus can be added to the menu item User.

 

To add the DASP sub menus, the file profile.do (which is provided with the DASP package) must be copied into the PERSONAL directory. If the file profile.do already exists, add the contents of the DASP –provided profile.do file into that existing file and save it. To check if the file profile.do already exists, type the command:  findfile  profile.do .
