Betreff: st: Change letter in string

Hi,

I would like to ask you how I can change a letter in a string  in stata.
For example I have a variable that contains last names. How can I  
change the letter "e" with the letter "a" in all names? (i.e. if the  
name is Beth I want to change it into Bath"

Thank you
Margie
