Hello everyone,

here is what I do, I copy and paste a string variable from excel to
stata ( ie. a column of observations from excel to stata). For some
strange reason there is a SPACE after each observation which refuses
to go away even after I use the -trim- command.

Has anyone experienced this ? Please tell me if I can read about this somewhere.

Thank you,
Ashim.
