Sorry I sent it prematurely.

Thank you Eric an Martin

I still need some help. One example of a list looks like this:

Norrköping     for Norrköping
Nässjö            for Nässjö
Söderköping    for Söderköping

Should I write

replace var1 = subinstr(var1, "ö", "`=char(246)'", .)
replace var1 = subinstr(var1, "ä", "`=char(228))'",.)

Correct?

Can I include the content of all variables, all variable names and all
labels in one commandline?

Greetings

Roland
