I don't see anything obvious -- you'll need to look at the file directly.  Is Stata reading the first 184 observations, or are the 184 observations from different places in the file?  Check that first, and if you are getting the first 184 observations, then look at lines 184-6 (depending on whether the file has a header line).  Something has to be going on there.
