Hello,

With renpfix we can prefix variables.
However, I would like to suffix.
Is this possible? 
======================

In addition to the other solutions, note also -rensfix- available from
STB-59: dm83. Type -findit rensfix-.  The STB article itself is
available from the Stata Press website for free

        renames variables by changing the suffix


Despite co-authoring -rensfix-, I tend to use -renvars- for all renaming
situations that -renpfix- does not handle.  -renvars- is a very powerful
tool. It would be nice for its features to be incorporated in official
Stata.

Having tried these first, you would not have needed to post your
message.  Even -findit suffix- would have provided you with a solution.
So too would have -findit rename-
