for simple gen (replace) statements there is an easier way: the user-written command -defv- (use -findit-); note, however, that -defv- does not work with -egen- or with -by-

Not to my knowledge.
Probably the best way of documenting this is to use variable -notes-. Try this:

program mygen
qui gen `0'
gettoken name rest: 0
note `name': `0'
end

mygen lprice = log(price)
mygen gpm = 1/mpg

Dear Chris,

Hi, I wonder if you could help me with an Stata issue.
Is it possible for stata to automatically label a new variable with the formula used in "gen"? ex: gen y = x+1 automatically yielding label variable y with "gen y = x+1"
Kind regards,
Alessandro.
