Drs. Cox and Gallup,

Thanks for the help.

And Nick, I usually check for appropriate titles, and I apologize for not doing
so in this case. And I apologize for relying on Google. I appreciate your suggestion
of turning to -findit-.

Having dispensed with the personal matters, in general I have noticed Stata struggles
with outputting variables affected by either time-series or interaction operators. It
seems it would be a fairly simple matter for the programmers to come up with a bit
of code that would replace -l.varname- with "varlabel (first lag)" or "varlabel lagged
one period" or something similar; as far as Dr. Gallup's point goes, -l(2).varname-
would then appear as "varlabel (second lag)" or "varlabel lagged two periods."
Similarly -c.varname1#f.varname1- could be rewritten "varlabel1 interacted with
varlabel2," "varlabel1 X varlabel2," or, again, something similar.

The point is, it seems doable from someone with relatively no coding experience, so
I am sure there are plenty of reasons why it cannot be done, but I will hold out hope.

Thanks again,
