I have my data in the following format

id v1_97 v1_98 v1_99 ...... v1_11 v2_97 v2_98

Each variable span over 15 years and there are total of 200 variables and about 4000 subjects (id). I want to change the dataset in a panel where data can be arranged like this:

id year v1 v2 v3
1  1997
2  1998
3  1999

I thought this  may be the case of RESHAPE - wide to long. In my case v1 v2 v3 have completely different names. Somehow I could not figure out, how to deal with this scenario. Any help will be really appreciated.

Thanks

David
