Hello List,

    I have a series of fixed formatted flat files which I read in STATA
    using infix. Sometimes I get a character ˙ in one of the name/address
    fields and STATA stops reading the file. In other words, if the
    character ˙ appears in line 100, STATA only reads till line 99 of the
    data file. How can I make STATA read the entire file?

Thanks,
Pinaki
