st: Stat-Transfer Ver.6
I have a dta-file version 7 that I need to provide to my colleague as an SPSS file- I have realised our current version of Stat-transfer can not read Stata 7 files.
I have tried saving the file as version 6 by "save, replace old" after the hassle of having to reduce all variable names to 8-characters or less.
My query comes in two parts:
1. I still have a problem with labels - Stata is telling me "value label name .. too long"
What can I do about that...
2. If I manage to update Stat - Transfer Ver 6.0, and transfer my original Ver 7.0 files to SPSS , will I still face the same problem (a variable name which is more than 8 characters) this time with SPSS.
Many thanks for your thoughts in advance.
