TextPad is pretty nice because if you also grab the syntax file, it will color-code Stata commands that you type into it as you build your do files, helping you "see" many of your errors instantaneously.

Third party software can easily take care of such problems, see

Betreff: st: maximum number of characters in do file

Dear Stata listers.
Background: Stata 9, Windows Vista.

I am trying to make a do file that will define the values for 5820
health care providers. I did the syntax in excel in order to have the
proper format (quotation marks and numbers associated to names), but
when I tried to paste into the do file a message appeared informing me
that: "You will exceed the maximum number of characters that the
do-file editor can hold (131071 bytes) if text is pasted"

I looked in google for similar questions to the stata list and some
solution provided was to use notepad, but using this I got the error:
input too long.

I'm hoping that my question is very well written and formulated in
order to get a proper response from any of you. Thanks.!
