By variable label, I think you mean value label. Big difference! An easy way to do this is just to work with the result of gen drug2 = drug -drug2- inherits the values but not the value labels of -drug-.

There are many reasons for this, not least because if I have more than a few values in the variable, the legend becomes a little unwieldy and I also entitle the graph so that its clear what I'm graphing. > > I've had a search around on Google but don't seem to be able to find exactly what I want.
