Need help transferring data from STATA to HLM7

#1
I need HLM 7 to do nested model regressions.

The error that is coming from HLM 7 is that the number of variables exceed 8 digits and HLM 7 can't use them.

My identifying codes already have been truncated to 8 digits and I remove any variables, irrelevant to my analysis, that might caused any issues.

The same issue keeps showing up. I have run out of options on what to do.

Does anyone have suggestions to what I can do to my data files so HLM 7 can read take them in.

stata is a very powerful software and i'm pretty sure it can fit linear mixed models without the need to resort to HLM7. why not keep all your analyses in stata and just ditch HLM?
