Dear All,

One of my Stata .dta file got corrupted. Some rows are missing completely, others were thoroughly duplicated or tripled but the overall number of entries stayed unchanged. Although I am normally willing to blame myself for that kind of thing right away, this time I just can't imagine which sequence of commands or lapse of concentration could be responsible for the state of the file. Question: Has anybody ever experienced a .dta file getting corrupted by being tranfered via ftp? Or do I have to look for something else?

Thank you very much,

Lutz Engelhardt
