Dear All,

I would like to read a series of variables; group, x, y, and z, where
there are several sets of observations per line. Here are some sample
lines of data.

T 12 22 1478 F 18 20 1278 F 13 28 1077
T 11 33 1789 T 17 29 1122 F 19 39 1557

How can this be done? I tried using the dictionary but I don't know
how to tell Stata that the second observation starts at column 14 and
the third starts column 27.

Raphael
