WRT translating from SPSS, are you sure that Stat/Transfer doesn't
provide an option to transfer long variable labels into Stata notes
(which, BTW, are themselves implemented as characteristics)?


Indeed, Stat/Transfer Version Ten writes variable labels longer than Stata's eighty character maximum as both as truncated variable labels and, in full, as Stata notes.

Best,

Steve
