Dear All,
Is there any way I can change the name of the variable. In my data set
the variables are in capital letters and I want them to change into
small letters. There are about 700 variables and I wanted to change
them into small letters. The list of some of the variables in my data
set is given below, some of them are numeric and some are string
variables.

findit renvars

A couple of versions show up; get the dm88_1 version.

Then do something like

renvars V1-V700, lower
