Hi All,

 Is there a way to drop variables based on variable label?

 I have some variables (which are redundant) whose variable label start with 'rs'.

E.g.

var     label

v1      rs12

v2      s13

v3      rs14
v4      rs17
v5      s15
...........
.......
....

I want to drop the variables whose label starts with rs (v1, v3, v4,...).

Any help is appreciated.

Thanks,

-Joey
