You don't say what operating system you are using. See the archives for
very recent discussion of machines, etc., appropriate for large
datasets.

Do you guys know how I can work with a very large dataset (30 Gb) in
Stata? The dataset is in a text format, and I'd like to know:

1. How I can extract a few variables or delete observations that don't
meet certain criteria; and

2. if it's possible to work with the entire dataset in Stata.
