------------------------------------------------------------------------
Before I reshape my data, I do not have any variable label.
After I reshape my data, every variable has a variable label.

For example, befor I reshape, 
codebook q3x gives
q3x ----------(unlabeled)

After I reshape (2 times)
codebook q3x41 gives
q3x41 --------1 q3x4
"1 q3x4" is the variable label of q3x41 !
Why a label, and why this label ?

Is this normal ?
Is it possible to reshape and get variables without labels ?

Thank you.
BD.
