Hello Stata users! 

Does anyone know how to attach multiple labels and notes to a dataset? Say I have the variables 

country 
year 
inflation 
reer 
cpi 
balance 
budget 
primary 
... 

and my data are organized as a panel by country and year... If I have another text file with all the variables and their corresponding labels, can I just export these contents to Stata so that it recognizes each separate label and attaches it to its corresponding variable?

The same question for notes (adding notes to each variable). 

Thank you very much. 

Adrian
