Re: st: Transfering multiple data to stata format.

I myself am a StatTransfer user, mostly because StatTransfer has a DOS

presume that Amadou doesn't have StatTransfer.
I have several data sets in spss format that I want to convert into stata
I am using dbms copy v7 to do the job. But it won't accept multiple inputs.
It is painfull to select one by one.
Is there any efficient, faster way to code this?
DBMS Copy still doesn't have a DOS command mode (I think). However, I seem
to recall that DBMS Copy has batch files, written in a command language of
its own. Amadou might possibly write one of these batch files, or even
write a Stata program to write one of these batch files.
I hope this helps.
