Stat/Transfer version eight supports SPSS long variable names. Long
variable names are written to Stata version seven or higher. The only
reason I can surmise that they are not being transferred into your Stata
file is that the Stata version is set to something earlier. You can check
this by looking at the text to the right of the output file type selection
control or the "Stata Version" option on the third options tab.
Does anyone know whether there is an easy way to transfer long variable
names (names longer than 8 characters) to STATA from SPSS?
