If you are using linux and you know the format of the notepad file,
then I guess there are commands
to truncate it beforehand before loading it to stata?

I'd like to load a very large ASCII .csv file into a .dta Stata file but it keeps bumping up against the 1.1g memory limit and Stata suggests I "drop some observations or variables." My question is how one can load just a portion of an ASCII file--for example, the specific variables of interest, or only those observations where variable1=xyz--so as to end up with a more manageable Stata file.
