To convert SAS data sets to Stata datasets, I personally use Stat/Transfer, whose website is at
and which has the advantage (over DBMS/Copy) that it can be called as a DOS command. The -stcmd- package can call Stat/Transfer from within Stata, and can be downloaded from SSC using the -ssc- command. However, Ben (or somebody) would have to find the money to pay for Stat/Transfer.

I hope this helps.

Best wishes

I know that fdause cannot read SAS labels.  

Is there any other way to
transform SAS data into Stata data while preserving labels?  I have an older version of DBMS copy that I could use if necessary.
