Subject: st: simple variable list with labels

I'd like to be able to produce a simple list of full variable names and 
labels that can be pasted into a spreadsheet.

So far i've tried using codebook and describe but these either produce 
too little or too much output.

Ideally i'm looking for something like the uselabel command i.e. 
creating a new dataset comprising names and labels.

Any ideas?
