Copying Stata graphs into Word or Excel

To paste a Stata graph into Word or Excel (or some other package), you have two options.

  1. Firstly, you can simply create a graph in Stata, right-click on it and choose "Copy", and then paste it into whatever package you are using.
  2. Alternatively, you can save your Stata graphs for insertion later. To do this, you should execute the following line after your graph command (e.g. histogram):

    graph export filename.suffix

    where "suffix" should be either wmf or emf.
