You give no indication of the format the data is currently in either
in terms of the file-type (.xls/.csv/in a database) or data structure
(wide v's long).

You will however find the following commands (and their help pages)
potentially useful for reading your data into Stata

-insheet-
-infiling-
-infile2-
-infix-

...and getting it in the correct structure you'll likely want to read up on...

-reshape-

(simply type the above command preceeded by 'man' but without the
flanking -'s in Stata to read the help-page for the commands
help-page).
