Dear Statalist

I'm am trying to obtain a list of my variable names in one column ( I
have over 100 variables).  I haven't achieved this but I have been
experimenting with the -ds- command, specifically the options
'varwidth(#)' and 'skip(#)'.  Can anyone help with this?

One small point, the help file for the -ds- option 'skip' states the
default is skip(12) , but if I use skip(11) the following error is
returned 'skip() should be in the range 1..10'.
