Thanks
Yes I have used and continue to use -insheet- (mainly if I have tab delimited data from excel) and specifying the string length is not a problem with -insheet-. That said, there are situations where -infile- is the appropriate command and of course -input- is invaluable when I want to input a few entries. In this case I have to specify the length of string variables

have you tried -insheet-??

Is there something in newer versions of Stata that would save me from
guessing the length of strings when using -infile-
and -input-
