The short answer is absolutely not. Stata cannot divine 
your desired -reshape- without information on what variables
you want to be reshaped. 

Please check out the manual entry in detail, then 

FAQ     . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . .  Problems with reshape
        12/03   I am having problems with the reshape command. Can
                you give further guidance?
                http://www.stata.com/support/faqs/data/reshape3.html

and then (if your problem remains insoluble) report back with
more detail on the structure of your variable names.
