Thanks to everyone who responded to my -rename- problem. I added an IF command to the -foreach- loop and now have a solution that (a) ignores variable names that are already lowercase and (b) stops execution of the do-file if the names of two variables in the data differ only with regard to upper or lower case. ds local vars "`r(varlist)'" foreach v of local vars { local newname = lower("`v'") if "`v'" != "`newname'" rename `v' `newname' } The lines above can be replaced by a single command if -renvars- is installed. . renvars, lower Thanks again.
