The code should have been: tempfile df0 descsave DE4A_5yr, do)`"`df0'"')

destring parm, gene(DE4A_5yr) do `"`df0'"' list

I hope this helps.

The best answer to this is probably to use the -nolabel- option for the -proportion- command, to extract the numeric values from the -parm- variable in the -parmby- output dataset, and to reconstruct the variable -DE4a_5yr- in the output dataset using the official Stata commands -split- and -destring- with the -descsave- package, which ypu can download from SSC. The -descsave- command is an extended version of -describe-, and is a Stata program which writes Stata programs. Your code might be: tempfile df0 descsave DE4A_5yr, do)`"`df0'"') parmby "svy: proportion DE4A_5yr, nolabel missing", norestore rename(estimate Proportion) split parm, parse(:) gene(S_) destring S_2, gene(DE4a_5yr) drop S_* do `"`df0'"' list The -tempfile- command creates a name for a temporary do-file. The -descsave- command creates that temporary do-file, which contains commands to reconstruct any variable labels, value labels, formats and storage types for the variable -DE4A_5yr-. The -parmby- command is like the one in Anupam's code, but it does not rename the variable -parm- in the output dataset, and -proportion- has the -nolabel- option, so that the new variable -parm- will contain only numeric values for -DE4A_5yr-. The -split- command inputs the -aprm- command and outputs 2 new variables -S_1- and -S_2-, containing the contents of -parm- to the left and to the right of the colon (:). The -destring- command inputs S_2, which will contain character representations of the numeric values of -DE4A_5yr-, and outputs the numeric variable -DE4A_5yr-. The -drop- command drops the temporary variables -S_1- and -S_2-. The -do- command executes the temporary do-file to reconstruct the variable attributes (including value labels) for the variable -DE4A_5yr-. Finally, the -list- command displays the output dataset, which should now include the new variable -DE4A_5yr-, reconstructed in the output dataset, complete with value labels. I hope this helps.
