If you don't have SAS and don't know anyone with access to SAS, this 
seems to be a clear case for using StatTransfer unless this is a 
once-off operation.  SAS files tend to be complex and have a lot of 
embedded information on labels, etc which StatTransfer will try quite 
hard to preserve.  StatTransfer does not require that you have SAS on 
your system.

==========================

Dear all,

I am currently using ?usesas? command to try to read .sas7bdat data set in
Stata 11. But the Stata told me the following:

The usesas command uses the savastata SAS macro to load the SAS dataset into
memory.
Large datasets may take a few minutes.
Edit your sasexe.ado file to set the location *
of your SAS executable file. *
C:\stata11\ado\plus\s\sasexe.ado
*! sasexe Version 2.3 dan_blanchette@unc.edu 11Apr2012
*! the carolina population center, unc-ch
  edit sasexe.ado (click, to edit the sasexe.ado file, remember to save when
done.)
  usesas requires that you have a working version of SAS on this computer.
r(499);

I changed the location in sasexe.ado file to where I save the downloaded
?.sas7bdat? data sets. But the Stata still can not read the SAS data. What I
downloaded from website are all data sets in format of ?.sas7bdat? . My
computer does not have SAS software. I also downloaded SAVASTATA.sas from
website, but looks like this file is for SAS software, not for Stata
software.

Now, I am stuck here. I appreciate for any suggestion about reading
.sas7bdat data sets in Stata.

Best Regards,
Lynn
