Thanks Nick and Rodrigo. I did not know about the copy command.

Testing the suggestion works:

copy " " simple.txt, text

insheet using simple.txt

I had to use the quotes otherwise I got an error message:

varlist not allowed

Thank you!

In the interim: -copy- followed by -insheet- is what I would recommend,
as -copy- can use internet addresses.

I know that "use" allows using Stata .dta files from the web, but if a
site has "insheet"-like data (and nothing else), it would be nice if I
could insheet from the http site, like you can "use" from an http site.
