I have a data set with about 600 variables and all are in upper case. Is there a simple way to make the case lower?

I played with ren ARM lower("ARM") that didn't work. I suspect I'm missing something very obvious. What I'd eventually like to do is something like

foreach v of varlist A-Z{

ren `v' lower(`v')


but that won't work.
findit renvars

Get the dm88 version that has both Cox and Weesie as authors.
