You could -infile- or -insheet- the data in smaller parts. Or have a look at -chunky- (type -findit chunky- in Stata).

Dear Kit Baum,

Thank you,yes I am using stata10/IC, I want to bring the whole database into Stata, the number of variables are above 3000. Stat/Transfer also fails to transfer this database into Stata. I was thinking if somebody knows anyway to work with stata10/IC because we have got a License for it.

Thank you anyway,
BW,
Muhammad Riaz
