What error is Limdep showing you? I found that the easiest way to import 
data is to write the variable names directly into the source file. 
Furthermore check with a text editor (there is a trial version of 
UltraEdit available) that the maximum line length is 80 characters for 
the lines that contain the variable names. I would go with plain comma 
delimited text file using the SAS export function if Stat Transfer is 
giving you any problems. Concerning the project size: you need to adjust 
the size in Tools>Options as well.
