Stata Do File Organization

Locating DO files in a folder fast !

Stata DO files are essential for reproducible research data analysis.
Over years, I have developed my preferred method of DO file organization.

File Naming – “## –”

The ## is the numbering of the files to facilitate automatic sorting of the files. First file often for me is “00 – data” followed by “01 – data” and then “03 – results”, “04 – table”, and so on.

Need to add a file in between two DO files ?
Name it “##.# –”
This will preserve sorting.
