It seems to me that the answer here is to store the "labels" in a
separate string variable.  Then you can use the short name variable or
the long name variable (ie, the "value" or the "label") as you like.
This may be fine if possible, but for those of us who regularly work with millions of observations, it is often not feasible. That it is not possible to label string values is a shortcoming that should be fixed in future releases.

best regards,
Erik.
