Ashim,

what do you need the list for? -describe- will give you the list,
along with data types and labels.
If you want to loop over all variables in your dataset, you can do

foreach x of varlist * {
 ... whatever...
}

Also, -ds- will return the list of variables in the macro r(varlist).

Hope this helps,
Eva
