One factor that could produce this is if the first line of data has missing data on any of the variables. I often put in a dummy line for the first line, a whole bunch of 9s or 99s or 999s.

I have saved an SPSS file at tab delimited ASCII, used insheet and STATA
looks like it has read the data, but it only recognises some of the
variables and thinks that some of my numeric data are strings.  What is the
best way to do this without stat transfer?
