Another option is to use -numlabel-.

Example:

sysuse auto
numlabel origin, add mask("[#] ")
tab foreign rep78

-numlabel- adds the corresponding codes to the value label; thus, both
code and label will be displayed whenever you -tabulate- or -list-
(etc.) your data. This is permanent for the session and will be saved
if you save the data.  To undo it, use

numlabel origin, remove mask("[#] ")

Obviously, you can change the brackets [] to your liking.

I personally like to have code and label visible; therefore I tend to
use -numlabel- without a label list at the top of my do-files, in
order to apply it to all of my value labels.

Hope this helps,
Eva
