Hello All,

I need to truncate a very large census file. I only need a few variables
from the file so I am using the in sheet command with the variables I want
read in listed in the command. However, the file still isn't loading. The
error code I keep getting back is not helpful and the file is too large to
open in Excel.

The code I use is:
insheet year quarter county earnhiras earnhirns hiras hirn using
"qwi_la_se_county_naics3_all.csv", names


The error I get is:

too few variables specified
error in line 4508597 of file


Is there something else I can try? I really need to get at this data and
ca=
nnot for the life of me figure out what other command to use to pull out
th=
e specific data/variables I need.
