st: infile - multiple lines
I am trying to enter the area resource file (arf) in stata.
The data is in fixed format, but each observations spans
multiple lines. Also, the observations seem to split different
across lines. So, the first observation may start in row 1 column 1, while
the second observation may start in row 8 column 6.
The sas code that comes with it looks
@00001 f00001 $ 01. /*Blank */
@00002 f00002 05. /*Header - Mod FIPS St & Cty Code */
@31660 f0098573 02. /*Crop Season Span */
@31662 f00547 $ 01. /************* */
Any suggestions of how to read this data using STATA?
