Export data in Stata

Hello!
How to export data from Kobo directly to Stata software?
Thanks

Hi @msodjinou,

The discussion thread should help sort out your problem:

GOOD DAY!

Hello!
Is sommes problem on the Kobo platform?
It is very difficult to work on the platform since this morning.
Thanks

Hi @msodjinou,

The problem has been solved and should be working smoothly now!

GOOD DAY!

Hello!
I remarque that if the database is too large, the command kobo2stata don’t work.
Thanks to revise it.

I have database which contain 2099 variables.

Hi @msodjinou,

Could you provide feedback to @FSg in his original post From KoBo to Stata (new solution) so that he could respond to you on the same.

GOOD DAY!

This is not a limitation of kobo2stata but of the Stata version you use. Stata IC allows only up to 2,048 variables. Stata SE up to 32,767. Stata MP up to 120,000 variables.
In other words, even if you try to import your dataset into Stata IC without kobo2stata, it will not work.

Yes. I have stata version 14 SE. but thé same message appear. My data base contains 2099 variables.
Why?
If you want, I will send the data base to you for help me.

Thanks to help me.

If you send me your database and xlsform (exported from Kobo exactly as specified in the kobo2stata help file) via email to kobo2stata@gmail.com, I‘ll be happy to take a look. If you are concerned about data confidentiality, please note I don‘t need the full dataset. The first row containing variable names and another one or two rows of sample data will usually suffice to identify the problem.

Also, please stop creating new posts for the same issue (you have now created three posts on this forum with the exact same question). You will not be helped faster by spamming. Please understand that kobo2stata is a user-written contribution and not commercial software. Your problem will be considered if and when time allows.
