Dear Qian, the following code may do the trick:

----------------code begins---------------------
input year_1995 year_1996

 8       19
 15      20
 67      76
899     99999
999     288
end

stack  year_1995 year_1996, into(year) clear
rename  year values
rename _stack year
label define year_1995 1 "1995", modify
label define year_1995 2 "1996", modify
label values year year_1995
----------------code ends---------------------

Kind Regards,
Carlo
