Sorry, I sent from my friend's email address accidentally, we share
the same computer for now.

My response is the same;

In Stata, Date GAR(P) GAR(MV) .... are copied as variable names to the
data editor after I copy paste from Excel.

If I do not keep them as variable names, then variable names will be
var1 var2 ... as default and Date GAR(P) ... will be copied as values
to the first cell.

I don't know which one is easier to manipulate.
