Hello,

after having imported data from Excel, I noticed that for some variables Stata cutted the decimal places and considered these variables as two seperate variables. 

E.g. Var1: 15,25 --> Var1: 15, Var2: 25 

Strangely, this does not happen to all comma-containing variables (although they all have the same format in Excel). Anyone a clue why this happens and what can be done about it?

Regards,
Julia

P.S.: In case this is an Excel-specific problem, apologies for posting the issue here!
