Dear Statalister:

Does anyone know whether there is an easy way to transfer long variable
names (names longer than 8 characters) to  STATA from SPSS?

Using the most recent version of StatTransfer (Version 8) but not the
most versions of Stata (Version 8 rather than 9) and of SPSS (Version 12
rather than 13/14) my SPSS variable names are shorted to 8 characters.
This is the case even though both SPSS and STATA support names much
longer than this.

Am curious regarding whether anyone has had success with the above using
more recent versions of Stata and/or SPSS.
