Dear Stata Users:

I'm trying to infix Census data that I have downloaded
in an ASC file (.asc).  I have created a dictionary
(.dct) with which to infix the files.  Stata returns
the dictionary as invalid.

The do file looks like the following:
set more off
set memory 500m
log using food2001, replace
infix using C:\FSP\2001cpscode.dct
sum
save ex00, replace
drop _all

The dictionary looks like the following:
infix dictionary using c:\fsp\2001cps.asc
{

HRHHID    1-15 
OCCURNUM  17-24
PWSUPWGT  26-35 
HHSUPWGT  37-46 
HESP1     48-57 
HESP2M    59-68
and so on....  followed by }
(the numbers are taken from the lay file produced by
Census when downloading Data)

Any suggestions as to why this won't work.

Thanks,
John
