I am in some difficulty creating a names list for incorporation into
TRMASTER.DTA. I have created a simple two column list with CALL and NAME as the
eceded by a FORMAT 1 2 statement. However whether I do this in Notepad ,
Wordpad, or a WP ( saving as ASCII) the names are randomly out of synch by one
( first letter sometimes truncated), when imported.
Visually the names are all lined up beginning at column 11 and I am using
Courier non proportional font, having used the tab key to create the columns.
I must be missing summat, but can't think what.
Further, would it not be a lot simpler and more elegant to have the data
delimited by a comma to avoid such difficulties?
Lastly I wonder if I am trying to reinvent the wheel?(!) I wonder if any of you
FOCers out there know if there is an electronic names list in existence
