i am trying to open a stata 7 dataset using stata 7 on another computer and am 
repeatedly getting error message r(610) "file ___.dta not stata format."  I 
have gotten a similar message before when trying to open a stata 8 data in 
stata 7 and just had to save the data down a version.  but this cannot be the 
problem this time, as the computer on which i originally saved the dataset is 
running the same version of stata...  

have tried the manuals and FAQs, but no luck.

any thoughts/advice greatly appreciated.  many thanks.
