Dear Nick, unfortunetly, I'm not being able to open the file with any
word processor (I believe that it is because of its size / this
dataset was provided by an government organization, so I already
received it in .txt format and don't have access to the primary data)

However, the output of the hexdump analyze was:
>> . hexdump TS_QUEST_ALUNO.txt, analyze

Is there any way I could transform this dataset in a way Stata would
read it entirely?

thank you and regards,
