I tried -desmat- after my posting. I couldn't
see that it did quite this.

Example:

----------------------------------------------------------------------

       log:  C:\Stata7\desmat.log
  log type:  text

------------+-----------------------------------
      Total |         74      100.00


That is, the variables created do not inherit value labels,
which I understood be what Roger wanted.
