This is probably a longshot, but is is possible that the file was saved
using Stata/SE on the first computer and that the second computer is
running intercooled?

Subject: st: dta file not stata format

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.
