All,

I'm interested in re-running old models by mean-centering all my
continuous variables for comparison, as well as obtaining meaningful
intercept values.

But I'm interested to know if there's a
quicker way, especially if I have a _lot_ of continuous variables to
mean-centre.
It's hardly automatic, but the quickest way I can think of is program that includes a foreach loop to create a newvar (m_varname) and an appropriate label for a varlist.
