Thanks to Kit Baum, a -labvalclone- program has been 
added to the -labutil- package on SSC. 

A previous version of this program was posted 
to Statalist on Friday in response to a question
from Roger Harbord. 

-labvalclone- clones the value labels with name vallblname 
as a new set of value labels with name newvallblname.  
This might be useful if you want to use almost the same 
labels as an existing set, so that 
you first want a copy of the labels, which you can then modify.

This command uses -file-, introduced into Stata 7 on 8 May 2001, 
so your Stata must have been updated after that for this to work.

Examples

. labvalclone oldlabel newlabel
. label def newlabel 5 "5 or more", modify

To install in an up-to-date Stata, type 

. ssc inst labutil 

or 

. ssc inst labutil, replace
