The manual states the following:

" label define defines a list of up to 65,536 (1,000 for Small Stata)
associations of
   integers and text called value labels.  Value labels are attached
to variables by label
   values."

So, it appears that you cannot define a value label for character
data.  Options seem to be replacing a single character with a larger
set of characters or creating a new integer measure and defining a
label for that variable.

Best,
Alan

label define $FM8X
"F" "Female"
"M" "Male"
"U" "Unspecified"
