. drop in 1
. g tmp = _n
. reshape long var ,i(tmp)
. drop tmp
. replace _j = cond(_j == 1, 4, 8)
. sort _j ,stable
. ren (_j var)(var#) ,addnum

Note that short, unprecise questions without any information about the
planned analysis or a brief description of the underlying problem,
combined with simplified examples are likely to get answers that may
not be appropriate for your "real" data, if at all.
