Dear Prof. Nick,

I am sorry I forgot to mention the data type is of .xpt. This type of data
can be read by Stata. Thank you and thank Prof. Williams for informative
suggestion. 

Best Regards,
Lynn

I may have missed something here, but I don't see that Lynn has

doesn't follow that Stat/Transfer -- or even access to SAS -- is
needed at all.
