Could anyone give me some suggestion of how to show variable labels in 
summarize command output ? Now STATA shows variables names in the 
output of "sum" command.  I was wondering if it's possible to show 
variable labels instead of variable name or together with variable 
names.
 
Now stata shows:
    Variable |       Obs        Mean    Std. Dev.       Min        Max
-------------+--------------------------------------------------------
     exp             
 
What I want is:
 
  Variable     |       Obs        Mean    Std. Dev.       Min        Max
-------------+--------------------------------------------------------
total working      
 experience            
 
or it's also fine to show both variable names and labels.

You got a couple of unofficial solutions to your very sensible
wish. An official solution is:
 
   . codebook , compact            // all variables
 
   . codebook exp , compact
 
Hope this helps
