Sounds the same question as Jennifer Earl 
on 1 June. She was also into code fantasies. 

On your last detail, you can do this without anyone writing 
new code: 

separate section, by(course) 
codebook `r(varlist)' 

Otherwise please consult the archives for answers to Jennifer's

I didn't see Scott's message at first in a string of spams).
