Since the dawn of time, ADD CASES and MATCH FILES have required that string variables have the same length across files. This is a frequent problem., especially when the data originated in Excel. It would be very helpful if this limitation were removed. The STATS ADJUST WIDTHS extension command can fix a batch of files using one of three resolution rules, but this extra step shouldn't be necessary.
Also, the limitation to 50 files is a nuisance, especially in the US where "state" files typically come in sets of 52. While eliminating the limitation altogether might be too much work, the limit should be raised to at least 100 files.
