Hi Christian,

Its traditional and normal etiquette to reply to the list as it means
that others can see the reply and respond.  Also the messages will
then be archived in publicly searchable archives for others to search

a) You've specified the conversion to Stata 8 IC when you initially
indicated that you are using Stata 11.

b) SPSS also appears to b telling you that some labels are too long.
