This is not very explicit and you give no examples. However, 
when I -tabulate-, I see variable labels, not variable names. 
Perhaps your variable labels are the same as the old 
variable names. Sounds unlikely, but if it is not the 
explanation, then we probably need to see exact commands and output, 
not a story 
(especially if your tabulations don't involve -tabulate-).
