" How do I get this behaviour back?"

Just change the prefix within Stata, then:

*************
clear
set obs 1
gen a_1_family=.
gen a_2_family=.
//get rid of prefix "a"
renpfix a
d
*************

Eric, Roger and Nick,

Thank you for the Reply. And yes you are correct.

What Stat/transfer did before was to add an underscore before the variable
name. Thus it changed:

 1_1_SubjectID  to  _1_1_SubjectID
 1_2_Reviewer  to  _1_2_Reviewer
 and so on.

How do I get this behaviour back?

Thank you,
