What can I do if I cannot open a CUF (or SUF) with my Stata version because it contains too many variables?

This often applies to computer rooms in universities if Small Stata or Stata Intercooled (IC) is installed there. Stata IC can load data sets with a maximum of 2048 variables. For Small Stata the evaluation is limited to a maximum of 99 variables and about 1,200 observations. But it is possible to load only a part of the data set with the use command: use [varlist] [if] [in] using filename [,clear nolabel].You can identify and select the (not) required variables via the search portal or via the codebook/variable documentation stored there for the data records.
