Dear Statalisters,

try the following in Stata. Why does the change flag not go to 1 after
editing the variable labels with a do-file?


*********
sysuse auto, clear

local change "new"

foreach var of varlist  make-foreign{
        local vl: var label `var'
        la var `var' `"`vl' `change'"' 
}

***data should have changed...
qui d
***but have not
di in red "Change flag at: " r(changed)

***now "real" change
drop dis
qui d
***now real change
di in red "Change flag at: " r(changed)
*********
