confidence, and I for one will not open attachments from an unknown
source, whether they have a .dta extension or not.  Also, traffic
should be kept on the list except as outlined in the FAQ.

Is ac006 a string variable, or is it labeled? If so, you may also want to try:
 replace ac006=subinstr(ac006,char(96),char(145),.)
 replace ac006=subinstr(ac006,char(34),char(39),.)
