AW: st: double quotes in var label error findname(ssc)

Of course I did a mistake. The original code is:
findname, varl(*Erststudium*) loc(st1) 

But I thought 'any' would be nicer to reproduce in any dataset. The varl(*any") in my first e-mail should be changed into varl(*any*).

Is *any" what you mean for "any" in the expression?
