Hi,

A meaningful description appears complete with variable names and their proper descriptions. I increased the memory using ". set memory 30m". Then run ". use SHS" and get the following error Segmentation Fault. I am running STATA 8.0 for SUN. I just noticed on the notes that are shown as the Stata starts running that:

Notes:
1. (-m# option or -set memory-) 1.00 MB allocated to data

I am thinking this is might be the issue.

Thanks,
Lucia

Hello Lucia,

It's hard to say from the information you provide, but my first guess
would be - check that the file SHS.dta in the current directory is in
the Stata format. Not just "has a .dta extension" but really is a
Stata file. Also try:

describe using SHS

to see if it provides meaningful description.
Check that you have an updated Stata and tell us the version/platform.
If the files you are working with are open and available in the
internet let us know.

Best regards,
Sergiy Radyakin

Hi,

I am fairly new to STATA. I have a data file which is approximately 26M in
size. I issue the following command use SHS to read the data in but keep
getting the following error message: Segmentation Fault.

Would anyone have any suggestions?

Thanks,
Lucia
