I have seen user written program -cfvars- but it is just comparing variable names. Any suggestions.

Subject: how to know the file structure difference before append

Dear Statalist users,

Is there any way to compare the dta file structure of two files to see the differences in varnames, types and formats?

Then I want to use the append to combine the observations of both files.

Thanks
Rasool Bux
