I don't think you are addressing the main point. If you have the data to
do some stuff in Limdep, then it is not clear why you can not read the
data into Stata to do some other stuff in Stata. That should not involve
any programming at all and if there are specific problems with file
formats, then people on this list can advise. It is difficult to help
when your real problem is not clear and your story keeps changing.

Thanks Richard. I agree with you that one option is to run the routine
in stata. But unfortunately stata does not support some methods which I
am using or will need lot of programming which I am not comfortable. 
To be specific I am interesting in using lincom and nlcom routines. I
feel that if I can bring beta, standard error into stata etc. then I
should be able to use these functions. But I am not sure where to put
these information in stata system file which nlcom can use. Thanks again
for the response.

What type of analysis are you doing, and why can't you rerun it in 
Stata?  If it is some kind of technique that Stata can't handle, I am 
not sure that post-estimation commands (e.g. predict) would work
