Hi everyone....
I'm trying to read a plain text database with Stata 10, but there is a problem.
The command i've using is this:

infix module 1-2 var2 3-4 var3 5-10 var4 11-11 var5 12-13 var6 14-14
city 16-19 using db1.pet if module==95
infix module 1-2 var2 3-4 var3 5-10 var4 11-11 var5 12-13 var6 14-14
city 16-19 using db1.pet if module==10

This is a example of the data base
670104enginer     0515
9510006455 12    0515
1062044112 305  0515

I want to read that variables only for modules 95 and 10, not 67, but
the proble is the text in the lines of module 67. So, stata says:
'engi' cannot be read as a number for var3[1]

How can i solve this??
Pd. I don't matter the module 67
