st: splitting variables

I would like to split a variable into several ones, but there are no
separators. Thus I don't think I can use the split Stata command.
I only know that variable must be split every two digits. For
instance 123456 must be split into 12 34 and 56.
My problem is that I have to do that for about hundred variables and
that the number of digits is not the same for all the variables
(although it is always even).

Thanks for help
