Well, -recode- does allow a varlist, but then the rules applied must match.
If that is not the case, you need five separate lines of recode statements
for your five vars. I cannot see that as a drawback, though...

Subject: st: recoding sets of variables

Hello,
      I am trying to recode the values for 5 different variables, each 
according to a different rule, i.e,for the first variable I want to change
the 
missing values to 0, for the second variable the 2' to 4's, and so forth. Is

there an efficient way to do this in Stata? I have looked at the help for
both 
the recode and replace commands, and from what I can tell I would require 
multiple lines of code(one for each variable) to accomplish this task.Can
this 
task be further simplified? Thanks.
