Friedrich Huebler (huebler@rocketmail.com) asked about Stata 9 long
labels and their treatment by Stata 8:
> Does Stata 8 drop long value labels completely or are they truncated
> at 80 or 244 characters?

Stata 8 already was set up to deal with this problem because of the
difference in maximum value label length between Intercooled Stata 8
(80) and Stata/SE 8 (244).  If Stata 8 encounters a label with any
mapping greater than its maximum length, it does not load that label:

. use myfile
value label mylab contains labels longer than 244 characters
    The maximum length of strings in this version of Stata is 244.  The value
    label mentioned was not loaded.
