Many thanks for help on my previous query. I hope someone can help me with
this one:

I've been trying to use a Stata 8 data file in Stata 6, but keep getting
the error message "file not Stata format". Is there a (relatively easy)
way of transforming Stata 8 files so that they are able to be used in Stata
6 ?

The command 'saveold' saves Stata 8 data in Stata 7 format, and doesn't
help in using Stata 6, or so it appears.

saveold will make version 8 into version 7.
If you have a copy of Stata 7 somewhere, save foo, old will make it into version 6.
