Nick also has a package -ssc d  renames- which will do the job just as well.

***
clear*
set obs 100

forv i=1/150{
gen x`i'_56epi=runiform()
}

capt ssc inst renames
//rename all in one fell swoop
//renvars _all,  postsub(_56epi _45epi)
renames *_56epi , suffix(_45epi)
***

I have 150 variables all with the same suffix.  I'd like to be able to
change this suffix to a different suffix (eg from '_56epi' to '_45epi'.
Is
there an easier way to do this than using the 'rename' command 150 times?

Many thanks.

Steve
