In reply to my own question (see: http://www.hsph.harvard.edu/cgi-bin/lwgate/STATALIST/archives/statalist.0903/date/article-577.html
):

Thanks to Friedrich Huebler and the Stata List (see:
http://www.stata.com/statalist/archive/2008-04/msg00836.html
) (search of the Statlist Archives using "quotes" and "insheet")

I found a solution to the problem:

* ------------------------------------------
filefilter "file.txt" "fileOK.txt", from(\Q) to ("@#@")
insheet using "fileOK.txt", tab clear
erase "fileOK.txt"
replace note = subinstr(note,"@#@",`"""',.)
* ------------------------------------------

Thanks to the Stata-List!

Still: Should the -insheet- behavior as described in my previous mail be regarded as a bug or not?

Yours,
Dirk
