" loc lv = lower(`v')"





-lower()- expects quotation marks, though:



*************

clear*
inp UPPER UPPER2
5 4
end

d

 foreach v of varlist _all{
 local mylow=lower("`v'")
 rename `v' `mylow'
 }
*************

how about something like

foreach v of varlist ILD-CUTIC_OG {
	loc lv = lower(`v')
	rename `v'  `lv'
}
