As said, if it's not a problem with variables being (mis)read as string, then it sounds like a problem with missings. Have a look at your data e.g. using -codebook- and opening the Data Editor and see whether and where there are missings and whether they match what is seen by SPSS.

By way of an update, I have also applied the latest patch so as to 
upgrade to SPSS 19.0.0.2 and then re-saved in Stata format using the 
SPSS dialogue box. However, this has not eliminated my original error 
message pointing to there be "no observations" for my "statistical 
calculation".
