Hi,

I'm trying to reshape my data, but have a very large number of
variables which are not necessarily in the same form.  Is there some
way I can execute this command without typing out all the variable
names?

Also, is there a way I can put a list of variable names into some sort
of "namelist" variable which I can use later?  (i.e. I would just type
"reshape wide <namelist>)  I know that there's some "syntax" command
but don't understand how to use it here.

Thanks,
Amber
