Martin, thank you for your quick reply.

I just take a simply example in my previous posting. In fact, I want to store the labels for certain variables in one dta into a localname and then feed them to other variables in the other dta. However, the labels for certain variables have space, which make things troublesome.


Look forward to any help.

Thank you very much.


Best regards,

Rose.

If you really do want -_all- variables, then your -word count- is a rather
roundabout and hazardous way to get the # of variables. Why not just 


*************
di in red "# of vars in the dataset: " c(k)
*************

Betreff: st: how to make the labels in the localname to be independent of
each other?

Dear statalists,

I generate a localname to stand for the var labels of certain variables.
However, there are spaces in the labels of certain variables.
How to let stata treat each label as a complete unit?

For example, 

clear
input x y
1 2
3 9
end
l
la var x "the first"
la var y "the second"
foreach i of varlist _all {
loc labels "`labels' `: var l `i''"
}
di "`labels'"
the first the second
di "`: word count `labels''"
4

In fact my purpose is to generate a localname including two labels, and the
word count
of it is 2.

Could anyone help me ? Thank you.

Best regards,
Rose.
