Dear Stata Listers. Few days ago I received a log file with a set of
results from a consultant. The file was saved as a txt file, but the
contents of the file are still keeping some SMCL references. This
happened because although the file was saved as txt, it was generated
as a log in SMCL. (For example:
like {smcl}
{com}{sf}{ul off}{txt}{.-}
       log:  {res}C:\data\brooks02.smcl
  {txt}log type:  {res}smcl
 {txt}opened on:  {res}26 May 2009, 10:40:39)

The thing is that I tried to open the file in Stata 9.2 with a viewer
and all the results are mixed with this set of symbols and signs. I
tried saving the file as .smcl, but this didn't work. My question to
you is that if it is possible to get rid of the symbols or otherwise
being able to see the log in a nice format.

I don't know which version of Stata the consultant used, what I know
is that locate him is a neverending task.

Thanks for your gently response.
