You can use the command -keep- with the list of variables that you want to keep with your analysis.

Why not just -drop- what you are not working with? You can 


preserve 
drop ...

... 

restore

I am using a file with around 500 variables and actually i am using only
around 20 of them. So, sometimes its hard to find the variable i am looking
for. So, is there any way i can hide the variables from variables box? i
want them to be there in my data but they should not show up in variables
box. also, is there any way i can hide them from data editor window.. and
when i want i can just unhide. I am using state 12 and data editor window
there is another box named "Variables". Stata has provided checkbox there
and when i click them the variable disappears from the data editor. but once
i close data editor, it all reverts to the way it was.
