What about the following solution:

*---------------------- begin example ------------------------
local coln `"bu_SA:Lfemale bu_SA:Ledq_low lnsig2u:_cons"'
local coln : subinstr local coln "lnsig2u:_cons" "pid1:_cons"
di "`coln'"
*----------------------- end example -------------------------
(For more on examples I sent to the Statalist see:

Hope this helps,
Maarten
