st: RE: reshape wide command without specifying all variables?
There are various ways to abbreviate lists of variables, which are
described in -help varlist-.
You can store a simple list of variables in a local macro, e.g.
local myvarlist var1 var2 var3
Or you can unabbreviate a varlist and store the full list in a local
macro with -unab-, e.g.
unab myvarlist : var1-var3
You do not need -syntax-, this is for use within programs.
Hope this helps

Subject: st: reshape wide command without specifying all variables?
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.
