I wonder if add "version 6" in your Stata program is helpful as it should be
as designed.

Subject: st: Using Stata 8 data files in Stata 6

Many thanks for help on my previous query.  I hope someone can help me with 
this one:

I've been trying to use a Stata 8 data file in Stata 6, but keep getting 
the error message "file not Stata format".  Is there a (relatively easy) 
way of transforming Stata 8 files so that they are able to be used in Stata 
6 ?

The command 'saveold' saves Stata 8 data in Stata 7 format, and doesn't 
help in using Stata 6, or so it appears.

Thanks for any suggestions.
