Many (!!) thanks, Sergiy!

This really solves a problem: To transfer automatically labels of extended missing values from Stata to SPSS, saveto9.exe will also allow the use of -dta2sav- with Stata 13 (and with a little extra work to install Microsoft's .NET Framework, it will also be usable for Mac or Linux users). And it will make life easier for those who would like to use Stata but don't want to loose ties with SPSS users.

In one of the next weekends I will write an update of -dta2sav- to adapt to this.
