st: insheet limit in string

Hi all,

I am using Stata IC v.11 and trying to import data using:
insheet using mydata.csv, clear

However, due to 244 string limit, I cannot correctly import the following
example. I cannot use delimit(;) option because it changes the data
structure I intended. If I can split school variable using delimit("; ["),
it will work, but Stata does not allow this. Is there any way I can import
more than 244 string? Can Stata 12 handle large string variables? Thank you
in advance.
Mike.
