Thanks to Kit Baum, a new program -usesome- is available from the SSC archives.

-usesome- loads a subset of a Stata dataset into memory. The program
is  similar to official Stata's use but enhances its functionality in
three  ways.

1. the user may specify variables that are not to be used
2. the user may specify  variable characteristics instead of variable names
3. the user may specify variable indices  instead of variable names

These enhancements are intended for use with flavors of Stata, where
the  maximum number of variables allowed in a dataset is rather small
(2,047 for Stata IC, 99 for Small Stata).

Stata 10.1 is required.

Best
Daniel
