replace force).  It didn't solve my problem.  Stata still reported an
error and immediately shut down. A co-worker suggested that I convert
the .csv files into .txt files before I appended the data sets in
Stata. This surprisingly worked!
Unfortunately, I cannot share my data sets with anyone as they contain
confidential information and sharing them would probably result in me
losing my job.


Thanks for your help!
