st: common prefix to all variables

Hello statalist,

I would like to give all variables a common prefix.

I thought first of using unab in a foreach loop:

unab variable : _all
foreach x in `variablen' {
rename `x' v_`x'

Although Stata correctly unabbreviates my varlist, I cannot call this varlist in a foreach loop nor in a for any loop.

All suggestions are welcomed

Best wishes
