Stata 15 help for _rename


[D] _rename -- Rename variable


Rename variable

_rename old_varname new_varname


_rename changes the name of an existing variable old_varname to new_varname; the contents of the variable are unchanged. Use [D] rename in preference to _rename.

As of Stata 12, code form rename was changed to ado/Mata from internal C. _rename is the old, built-in rename command. It is used in testing Stata, and when you set version less than 12, _rename is the rename command.
