DBMS/COPY is a file utility program that translates and transfers
data to and from over 80 different formats. For example, if you have

SAS, DBMS/COPY will translate the Excel spreadsheet to a SAS format
while leaving the original Excel file unchanged.

you might have an SPSS data set containing a large number of
variables, but plan to use only a small subset of those variables in
STATA. With DBMS/COPY, you can select and translate only the
particular variables you need.
