I am using Intercooled Stata 8, and am running into the problem of too many variables. The set is very large, but I only need about a quarter of the variables, but I cant drop any variables until stata reads them in and defines the variables. Is there a way to drop some variables before stata defines them? Upgrading to SE is not really an option.
Alternately, if anyone knows a method to read the dct. and .dat files into excel, I could delete the columns there, then read the remaining variables into stata.
thanks for any help!
