How to add a Stata Batch command to the DO file context menu
I made this web page primarily so I would remember how to do this when I get a new computer down the road.
If this helps someone else, that is great.
In any folder, click “Tools” => Folder Options
Then click on the “File Types” tab
Then find “DO” file and highlight and click the “Advanced” button
Type “batch” in the Action: box
Type C:\Stata8SE\wsestata.exe /m200 /s do "%1" in the Application used… box
“ /m200” sets the memory to 200MB and “ /s” specifies that the log is smcl
when done, click ok as many times as needed to close all of the boxes.
Now find a DO file and right-click, there should be a batch option now.
