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 
Now stata shows:
    Variable |       Obs        Mean    Std. Dev.       Min        Max
What I want is:
  Variable     |       Obs        Mean    Std. Dev.       Min        Max
total working      
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
