If Aggie is already asking her friend to send a new data set, is it preferable for her to ask for her friend to save the existing Stata set using the -saveold- command? I'm away from my computer right now so if someone else could confirm that would be great, but I think that would preserve any formatting, labels, notes, etc that Aggie's friend had applied to the data. That would save Aggie duplicating any pre-analysis prep work.

Start with -help infiling-.

By the way, Stata makes a distinction between upgrading
(floor(version) increases) and updating (it doesn't). You need an
upgrade. Your upgrade would get you Stata 11.0 after which you can
update to Stata 11.1.
