Hi samn,

You should try to import the columns with text data separately from the rest.
Set up the columns in Stata  ready to receive text, then simply copy and paste the text data into the new file.

Hi, there,
   I use 'odbc load' to import excel data. It works fine for double  variables(numbers), but not for string variable(letters). Basically when the variable is string, the observation is zero.
Does someone know how to fix this?
Thanks,

samn
