Thanks to everyone who responded. Martin, you were correct, I meant labels.

I decided to use -descsave- because of a very useful variable it creates called order which I use later.

descsave `vars', saving(`desc_labels', replace) rename(name Variable) keep(Variable varlab order)

Try:

sysuse auto
ssc inst descsave
descsave, sa(test)  keep(name varlab)
use test

Dear List
How can I create a small data set made up of variable names and variable
levels for some variables in a data set.

Something like this from the auto data

variable        var_label
make            Make and Model
price           Price
mpg             Mileage (mpg)
length          Length (in.)
trunk           Trunk space (cu. ft.)

Ronnie
