I believe the "lookfor" command doues this.

Subject: st:search variables according to words in label

Hi All,

Is there any way to search the whole data set  and find out those
variables which  have some specific common words in the variables'
labels? That is, it is possible to search for the variables according
to some words in variables' labels?

Thanks!

Man Jia
