st: Re: Stata 9 announcement
Friedrich Huebler (firstname.lastname@example.org) 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.
