It seems that the only change in the datafile is related to value labels.
Stata 9 now allows value labels to be up to 32,000 characters long and
in different languages.  So if your Stata 9 dataset does not take advantage
of these new features, can it still be read by Stata 8 and by data transfer
software like DBMS/Copy and StatTransfer?
