The easiest way is to add the numeric values to the value labels, which 
can be easily done with the -numlabel- command. In the example below I 
do that for all variables: -label dir- stores all names of value labels
in r(names) and -numlabel- adds the numeric values to the labels. 

*--------- begin example -------
sysuse nlsw88, replace
tab race
label dir
numlabel `r(names)', add
tab race
*--------- end example ---------
(For more on how to use examples I sent to the Statalist, see

Hope this helps,
Maarten
