Importing and exporting text-delimited data
The new commands for easily importing and exporting data to and from Stata are import delimited and export delimited.
import delimited is the star of the two. Exporting from Stata has always been easy.
Do you see the preview at the bottom of the screenshot? We have not yet imported any data! We are in the process of filling in the dialog box. As we work, we see exactly how our data would look if we were to import them into Stata using the current settings.
See the import and export delimited manual entry.
There's an import excel, too.
See New in Stata 14 for more about what was added in Stata 14.
