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.

In the excerpt from the on-line helpfile below, wouldn't the second -use-
syntax work?

Joseph Coveney


use   filename  [, clear nolabel ]

use  [varlist]  [if exp] [in range] using filename [, clear nolabel ]
