Betreff: st: renaming variables

Dear statalist
I would like to rename my variables var53....var108 such that var53,
var56, var59 ......var107 etc...are renamed as year1990,
year1991......year2008 repectively. I tried to use renvars(by Jeroen
Weesie) and a forvalues loop, but am not able to succeed.
Is there any other way?
Thanks and regards

PS-my incorrect way follows

forvalues j =53(3)107{
forvalues i =1990/2008{
renvars postsub(`i',`j')    /*the arguments should be strings, I guess,
