Dear all, 

I'd like to change the name of many variables in this way:

 rename moi01008 date_modif_1
 rename moi02008 date_modif_2
 rename moi03008 date_modif_3
 rename moi05008 date_modif_5
 rename moi06008 date_modif_6
 rename moi09008 date_modif_9

I'd like to use a loop, like 

  forvalues i=1/9 {
 rename moi0`i'008 date_modif_`i'
 }

But it doesn't work : "invalid syntax"

Even if this loop works, I have a problem with the value i=4,7 and 8 for
which moi0`i' does not exist.

How can I do ?

Thanks 

Alvine
