You might find -infile- useful:

input x str2 s
1 "04"
2 "10"
end
list
format s

outsheet using "test.csv", delim(";") replace
infile x str2 s using "test.csv", clear
format s

Hi!

I frequently use insheet. Unfortunately it sometimes converts string variables. Can I prevent that (without adding an alphanumeric suffix)?

Example (version 12):

input x str2 s
1 "04"
2 "10"
end
list
format s

outsheet using "test.csv", delim(";") replace
insheet using "test.csv", clear delim(";")
format s


Best regards
Sonja
