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.

Friedrich
