1. I second Tony's advice that you don't want to take the time to learn FORTRAN (an ancient and nearly-dead language that I last programmed in nearly 30 (!) years ago) if you can avoid it. Hire somebody to help if at all possible.

2. What is this "more complicated estimation" you need FORTRAN to do? I would never have guessed that there was a FORTRAN module to read Stata data files (all hail Sergiy!); there may be a Stata program to do what you want, or perhaps something in R (which would be much more useful to learn than FORTRAN).
