I'm not an expert here, but I think the experts, 
whoever they are, would want more than this. In particular, 
the report of "different results" looks impossible
to discuss without seeing them. You may be better
off taking a dataset, getting results from Stata and 
results from Limdep and mailing them both to Stata
