I have complicated raw data that is formatted on "cards" and I cannot
determine how to make a dataset from these data.
This is the information that I have concerning these data:
      DATASET 3
      PART NAME Merged 1976, 1981, and 1987 Data
      FILE STRUCTURE rectangular
      CASE COUNT 1,427
      VARIABLE COUNT 4,080
      LRECL 86
      RECORDS PER CASE 106

Can someone help me with this problem. I am a new Stata user and have only
used datasets up to this point, and not raw data. The data is in fixed
columns.
Thank you
