Hi-

I have a strange data cleaning question and was hoping someone would have a solution.

Is it possible to rename a list of variables with their label value (meaning replace the variable name with the variable label)? My labels identify the item numbers on a particular survey (but my actual variable names are not too informative). I am looking for a command like renvars, that will allow me quickly rename the variable, but so far I have not been able to find something.

Thanks in advance for any advice.
Daphna
