that's fine. but this is not what I mean. the file format is the same
- a text file.
Whether it can be run in a particular Stata or not, is a different issue.
otherwise we will have to say that there are "5G do files" because they have
a statement "set mem 5g" which 32-bit Stata's can't execute?

Stata will not crash after -version 12-. It will merely issue an error
code. So this is not the case here.

2Michael: how big is the file? can you open it in a Notepad? If so,
open and save again.
This may eliminate control characters, which I now suspect to be the reason.
