Stat-transfer can handle OSIRIS format datasets in EBCDIC, so if that's what you've got, Stat-Transfer is an answer. If the underlying format is something else, then not.

Hello list,

I have a huge dataset which is in EBCDIC that I need to get into
Stata. I have been told that I can do this using SAS as an
intermediary, translating from EBCDIC to ASCII.

Does anyone have any experience with this, or can point me towards a
generic translator? I just want to see if there is any easier way than
SAS.


Cheers, and thanks,


Dan Egan
