st: Importing variable names with French accents via -insheet-

Dear all, 

We are using Stata 13 on Windows.

I know that Stata supports accented variable names :

gen année = "test" 

will work perfectly for instance.

But it seems that importing data with accented variable names from a cvs file though -insheet- does not work: accented letters are literally lost in translation. For example "année" in the cvs file become "anne" in Stata memory.

Any workarounds or suggestions?

Many thanks in advance,
