Sorry, I'm confused....omit permanently where?
..and well, while I'm at it...how do I get a listing
of just my variables without any other info...describe
gives me too much info.
Please read the help pages for each of the commands you are using as
they contain the answers to many of your questions (this is clearly
stated in the Statalist FAQ, the URL for which appears at the bottom
of all messages on statalist, but just in case the link to the
specific section is
http://www.stata.com/support/statalist/faq#before).
If you look at the help page for more (type -help more-, omitting the
flanking dashes) you will see the explanation of what the
'permanently' option does, and can the choose whether to include it in
your do-file.
You may find it useful to read the help page for language if you do
not understand the syntax given in the help pages (-help language-)
and chapter 11 of the Users manual if you have a copy to available.
In a similar vein you can answer your own question with regards to
listing only the variable names (i.e. -help describe- provides the
answer)
