Hi, i have the a database like this:

country         descriptor      year1970 year1971 ... year2000
Argentina          var1                x70          x71              x00
Argentina          var2                y70          y71              y00
Bolivia               var1                x70         x71               x00
Bolivia               var2                y70         y71               y00
.
.
.

and so on... i want to know if exists a way in which i could reshape this
wide dataset into a long one that would look like this:

country         year           var1           var2
Argentina       1970            x70            y70
Argentina       1971            x71            y71
    .
    .
    .
 do you know how could i do the reshape of the two variables jointly ? if i
use the <reshape> command i'd have to do it one by one.

Thanks in advance
