A possible solution might use the -descsave- package, downloadable from
SSC using the -ssc- command. The -descsave- package creates an output
dataset (or resultsset) with 1 observation per variable and data on
their names and/or labels and/or other attributes (optionally including
characteristics).  This resultsset can be used to make tables, possibly
after being combined with other resultssets from other Stata commands.

I hope this helps.

Best wishes

Roger

Hi, 

I've checked the user's guide, programming and the
reference guide.  I want to use describe and only want
the variable name and variable label - not the other
information.  Also, when I use a table command - I
would like to see BOTH the variable name and the
variable label - is this possible? 

Thanks,
Buddy
