Betreff: st: label define

A basic question...
How can I create a new label set for the values of a variable, by modifying an old one?
For example if I have:
label define agegrp 1 "17-24" 2 "25-34" 3 "35-44" 4 "45-54" 5 "55-63"

and I want to create a new label set with a different name, say agegrp2 that has the following values:
1 "17-24" 2 "25-34" 3 "35-44" 4 ">=45"

Can I use the label set agegrp with the option modify, to create a new label set rather than just overwriting the agegrp label?

Many thanks for your help!
