I have tried using the outfile command in Stata 9.2 to create a space
delimited, fixed format ascii data file using data from an existing Stata
data file. I received an error message that the name of the ASCII file I
specified (outfile using <file name>) did not exist. Despite this message, I
did find the generated file on my computer. However, when I opened the file,
the information was unintelligible (perhaps it was in raw format?). (BTW, I
used the wide and nolabel options). Can anyone tell me how to get a readable
ascii fixed format file using the outfile or similar command?
In the advice on how to ask questions to Statalist:
it is recommended to show exactly what you wrote and exactly what
Stata responded. Copy-and-paste it from the Results window.
