I get an intermittent error 603 when using the reshape wide command in Windows XP. This seems more likely to happen if the dataset is larger, but sometimes the command will run if I try it again on the same data. I am guessing that this may be happening because the system runs out of memory, but I have no more memory available (600Mb). Is there any way around this? The dataset has 355K obs and is about 12Mb, with 5 "j" values. I have compressed the data and reduced the number of variables to a minimum.
