st: Fwd: how to use the label of oldvar to name newvar

Dear all

I am encoding a string var atc to a numeric var n_atc to enable the
use of forvalues.
In each loop i generate a newvar called atc_`xx' if atc== `xx' and
collapse (sum) of this variable.
My problem however that instead of atc_`xx' I would like the variable
to be named after the original string var atc which equals the label
of n_atc.

Is there anyway you can use the `xx' to identify to variable and then
name it after the label?

Hope someone can help me
Thanks
Anne
