Maybe the codebook you were given was annotated using something other than
Stata?  What you're seeing doesn't seem to be possible with the built-in
_codebook_ command.  It's possible that it was done with something
user-written.  But it's also possible that someone took the codebook output
from Stata and added the descriptions in some other way.  Probably the
fastest way to figure out how it was accomplished would be to ask the person
who generated the codebook.

Dear all,
I got a codebook that vars are presented in the following example. My doubt
is how can I do Stata shows The capitals letters line after second dashed
line. It is stupid think but is intriguing me since the morning, because
that explain line is not label var attribute, nor a note var. So, how can I
input this things in a data var?
