Dear colleagues,

I have a problem with Stata and I hope that you can
help me. I have been using till now Stata 8.0. on my
private PC.
Yesterday, with the receipt of a new computer I have
also got Stata 9.2.
I am trying to transfer all the data sets and do-files
which I have been using till now on the new computer,
but when trying to open them I get the following
message:


. use "C:\Dokumente und
Einstellungen\AT\Desktop\iabs-r01_stata\actual2001.dta",
clear
file C:\Dokumente und
Einstellungen\AT\Desktop\iabs-r01_stata\actual2001.dta
not Stata format
r(610);

or:

. use "C:\Dokumente und
Einstellungen\AT\Desktop\iabs-r01_stata\allbus2000-regbez-29Okt.dta",
clear
file C:\Dokumente und
Einstellungen\AT\Desktop\iabs-r01_stata\allbus2000-regbez-29Okt.dta
not Stata
    format
r(610);

I can not even open the do-files (there appear only
unreadable signs).

I suppose this problem has something to do with the
change of the versions I use, but I am not sure.
Could you help me please solve this problem?

I thank you in advance!

Andreia Tolciu
