I obviously agree with Nick. But on a more positive note, it is often
helpful to see an extract of the data when answering questions and you
can do so without sending attachments. For example see:

http://researchnotes.eric-a-booth.com/2010/12/example-data-for-other-stata-users.html

You can get the -writeinput- command discussed by Eric by typing in Stata:

ssc install writeinput

This has the added advantage that one only needs Stata to read that
data, and it is safe to assume that everybody on the Statalist has
Stata...
