Dear Colleagues:

In transferring a SAS dataset to Stata, I found that it's not possible
to keep value labels for string variables in Stata.  I guess that I
could encode the string variables and then create value labels, but
that seems a long way around the block to do this.

Anybody have a better idea or solution to this?

Thanks,

Larry
