My last few data extracts have not been showing a link to the command file for my extract.

My last few data extracts have not been showing a link to the command file for my extract. I have tried creating new extracts, but the link just shows a "--" instead of the file.

It sounds like you have changed the default data format to be something other than fixed-width text (.dat). For example, if you specified a Stata data format (.dta), your extract will already be pre-formatted to a Stata file and you can directly import the data without the need of a .do file. If you'd like the .dat file with a .do file, then you can revise your data extract and change the data structure to fixed-width text (.dat).
