Dear all,

I want to rename my var list: p1,p3,p7..,
Into new one :p1,p2,p3... 

Currently I am running such loop:
Local i 
For var of varlist
Rename var pi

But stata tells me error: can't find macro i ... How should I solve this problem?

I can't use renvars due to memory problem. 
Thanks in advance
