I am trying to transform a numeric variable (double %10.0g) into string
using -tostring-, however I get the following outcome:

 tostring folio, gen(sfolio)
folio cannot be converted reversibly; no generate

When I try the same command with a similar variable (long %12.0g) -tostring-
works fine.

Is there a way to get the string variable I am looking for?
