Whatever the problem is, that will not solve it. 

-format- changes display format only; it doesn't otherwise change the status of any variable, especially its kind, type or storage characteristics.

You should format the variable after pasting in Stata 11.

Try this:

format %6.1g GROUP

test GROUP
