Dear all,

I wonder if anyone knows a user written Stata command which allows one to generate interaction terms, e.g. -female*age- or -female*group1-, - female*group2- and -female*group3-, so that the labels of each variable are used for the interaction terms (e.g. "female * age", "female * social class 3").

I just fear that at the end of the day, I will want to rename a few variables. If one could only rename one variable (the non-interacted) and the rest would be automatically generated, that would take away some replacing besides the fact that the do-file won't grow that much...

Looking forward to any inputs! Kind regards,

Andrea
