There are various solutions, depending 
on whether you want to use general or 
specific tools. 

Most specific is -tolower- on SSC. 
But don't bother with that. Even its author
doesn't like it any more. 

Way more general is -renvars- from STB-60. 
About 80% of its authors still like it. 

But you don't need either, although -renvars- 
could still be useful for other problems. 

foreach v of var * { 
	rename `v' `=lower(`v')' 
} 

will do the job for you.
