st: Stata dictionary file
I am using Stata 8. I am trying to to read the raw data files into the
Stata format. The extration files include the .dct and .do file
seperately. I have changed all the correspondent file directories. I
deleted some contents in both the .dct and .do files.
However, an error messag, e"dictionary invalid", kept bothering me. This
error message occured sometimes, and sometiems not.
I orginally thought maybe making changes on the .dct file has changed the
file format. But not sure about this. I cannot identify the reasons.
Can anybody give me a clue?
Thanks a lot,
