My suggestion is this. 

Contact tech-support at Stata Corp with the 
following information: 

1. Specify the version(s) of Stata you are using 
on both machines. Give whatever is produced by 
typing -about- in each case. 

2. Specify how the dataset is read into Stata. 

3. Give the results of -describe- on this dataset 
and the office copy of Stata. 

tech support may well want more information.
