Thanks Jens for your prompt and detailed response to my question about 
exporting numeric fields for use in Stata.  While the fix you suggest in 
Stata (for var * : capture format X %9.0g) is simple for experienced Stata 
users, it's a bit painful as a general approach for new users.  I'm 
definitely in favour of exporting according to type and sticking to %9.0g 
formatting, if this is possible.
