if you have StatTransfer you can transfer ASCII into .dta first


If I can toot our own horn here, I should mention that you can also select cases, variables and perform random sampling. Stat/Transfer automatically selects Stata types and sets string lengths to minimize the size of your dataset.

These features will also work for .dta -> .dta transfers. It is thus a handy tool for the "file too large for Stata" problem.

Best,

Steve
