I think -descsave- can do this (-findit descsave- ) using the dofile() option. It will create a do file that re-applies all variable labels and value labels.

Hi Sven-Oliver,
Thank you for your kind reply.
I guess I am not sure about the difference in terms here but great you
pointed it out, but I will explain myself in giving an example:
1. how can I save the codes assigned for each variable and use them
in the other file, example:
How to save the code of variable 'studyid' that means "Patient ID number", etc..

and

2. how to save the values of variables, for example:
How to save the value of variable 'education' as 1) highschool, 2)
university, 3) illiterate


I want to use lists 1 and 2 in the other file because 100% the same
except it has extra records.
