Dear all,
I get an error shown below when i run the command "use" found in package epicalc on R2.7.1 and R2.7.0 but dont get the error when i run it on R 2.6.2

What is likely to be the problem?

library(epicalc)

Loading required package: foreign
Loading required package: survival
Loading required package: splines


use("malvac.dta")
Error in fromchar(x) :
  character string is not in a standard unambiguous format

use("maltreat.dta")
Error in fromchar(x) :
  character string is not in a standard unambiguous format

I have attached the datasets (Stata datasets) herein.
