I think you mean different versions, not different platforms?

I have run into similar problems (Stata files with mysterious properties) when using Stat/Transfer to create them. I take it this file was not originally created in Stata?

we have a stata dataset which can be read in stata v 12.0 but not v 12.1 (we have confirmed this on Windows, Linux, and OS X)  In Stata 12.1 an attempt to read the file returns the error message:
file not Stata format
   .dta file contains 3 invalid storage-type codes.  File uses invalid codes other than code 0 r(610);

In 12.0 it works fine.

Smells like a bug to me.  Anyone else encountered this?
