Dear all,
I have a dataset with a huge number of variables.
If I want to find a variable, is there something
similar to search but for variables and their labels?
Especially valueable will be for labels actually.
E.g. I want to find transfers in a dataset where
variables are named according to their order in the
survey, a9_q02, but do have labels. I want to try
several searches for different keywords.
Thank you in advance for your time!
Best,
Anna
