Thanks Nick. You reply helps. 
I'm using the org-mode development version and emacs-24 in Ubuntu. 
I am not with my computer at the moment, but I will check my installation tonight, and I will tell you if it works after a clean install. 

Many thanks for your help. 

Best wishes,

org-export-dispatch is the top-level function used by the exporter in
version 8.x of org-mode: it does not exist in earlier versions. It
should just work if you have installed org-mode correctly, so the fact
that it doesn't indicates that there is probably an installation
problem. So the main questions are:

o What version of emacs are you running and what version of org-mode?

  M-x emacs-version


  M-x org-version

will tell you that.

o The source of your org-mode installation: are you using the org-mode
that came with your emacs, or did you download a different version? If
the latter, did you use a tarball, did you clone the git repo, did you
download from ELPA, or perhaps something else?

Answers to these questions should help to determine your next course of
