No, not directly. You can only attach value labels to integers, remember. 

But the best way you can do something similar is likely to be with a -merge-.

Thank you Nick, that worked fantastic.
Is it possible to use this newly created dta file as a value label for
another data set, so that if fx in my other data set i have a patient with
the diagnosis 000.0 which is essential cholera, the essential cholera will
show up as a value label?
