Let`s give "weight" the -var label- of "mpg":


*************
sysuse auto, clear
d mpg weight
la var weight "`: var l mpg'"
d mpg weight
*************


You can also do things like -clonevar- which copies everything else as well.

Thank you.

pwvssn is just one of 52 variables.

What if I now want to copy the variable label from of pwvssn to a
variable called zpwvssn?
