Dear Statalisters

I have a Demographic and Health Survey dataset (see variables below)
which I would like to reshape from wide to long format. Any assistance
would be much appreciated

    str      caseid      1:   1-15
    long    v005        1:  38-45
    byte    v006        1:  46-47
    int      v007        1:  48-51
    int      v008        1:  52-55
    byte    b1_01       1: 222-223
    int      b2_01       1: 224-227
    int      b3_01       1: 228-231

    int      b2_02       1: 261-264
    int      b3_02       1: 265-268
    byte    b4_02       1: 269-269
    byte    b5_02       1: 270-270

    int      b7_02       1: 274-276
    byte    b1_03       1: 296-297
    int      b2_03       1: 298-301
    int      b3_03       1: 302-305
    byte    b4_03       1: 306-306
