Nick and Scott. 

Thanks for your ideas. This helps. But is there a way to get the 
unabbreviated varlist in column form, without any additional info (e.g. 
var labels, etc.)? -ds, varwidth(32)- lists the vars one next to the 
other as opposed to in a column. Similarly, -unab- stores the varlists 
in a local macro such that the varlist are one next to the other (like 
a long string). -describe, full- and -describe, simple- cannot be 
combined to -describe, full simple-, which would be necessary to 
generate an unabbreviated list of vars without any other extraneous 
information. I can probably work with ds as mentioned above, but it 
would save time if it could produce a (downward running) list of the 
varnames.
