Is it possible to read a .csv file into Stata and start from a specific row? I want to ignore some header information and tell Stata to begin reading the

There's a thought: why not allow the -in- option with -insheet-?

It would be useful for reading up parts of large datasets, including ones too large to be read in their entirety.
