Thanks again to Kit Baum, a new package -xrewide- is now available for download from SSC. In Stata, use the -ssc- command to do this.

The -xrewide- package is described as below on my website, and is a slightly extended version of -reshape wide-. It is intended as part of my system for converting resultssets into resultstables (output to TeX, HTML or RTF documents using the SSC package -listtab-), storing the column headings in variable characteristics.

Best wishes

Roger

TITLE
      xrewide: Extended version of reshape wide

DESCRIPTION/AUTHOR(S)
      The xrewide package is an extended version of reshape wide, which
      saves results in variable characteristics, in addition to the
      dataset characteristics saved by reshape.  This is done using
      additional options for assigning the values and/or value labels of
      the j-variable to characteristics of the corresponding generated
      output variables.  These characteristics can be useful for defining
      column headings if the reshaped output dataset is output to a table
      using the listtab package, which can be downloaded from SSC.
