Get -use13- from SSC. And/or get in the habit of saving Stata 13 files using the -saveold- command. I am a big fan of the stat/transfer program, although it isn't worth it if this is the only thing you would use it for.

Dear all,

I have a problem with -use-. At my workplace I have Stata 13 SE, and
at home I have Stata 11.2 SE. There is a .dta file which I modified
last time yesterday in Stata 13. But when I try to use it at home in
Stata 11.2 SE, I get the following error message:

file G:\DOKTORSKI\poverty\elasticities\data.dta not Stata format

I have checked file properties and it is written there that the file
is indeed a .dta file. All other .dta files work properly with -use-.
The situation confused me since I have never had similar problem.

Does anybody have a clue about what may be going on? And how to proceed?

Thank you.
