Thomas,
 
the following should do the trick,
 
su var
gen nvar=(var-r(mean))/r(sd)
 
if you have more than one variable, it's easy enough to write a small programme doing it (even my students managed the feast).

	I have a variable with values ranging from -1.58e-6 to 946515 (annual
	scores on a particular matrix derived measure).  I would like to
	standardize these values on [0,1] so that the observation with the
	highest value is given the value 1.  Any thoughts on an efficient way to
	do this?  Thanks to all in advance.
	
	Tom
