Try -findit renvars-

A very nice utility for making systematic changes to variable names.

Subject: st: Collapsing and renaming variables

Is there a way to collapse the data and tell Stata to automatically
rename the collapsed variables?

Perhaps this is too specific and not too many people would need that...

In that case, is there a way to rename a bunch of variables at once? For
instance, to tell Stata that I want variables a, b, c, d, ... renamed
a_old, b_old, c_old, d_old, ... or something like that?

Thank you.
Adrian
