Dear listusers,

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,
Ying
