Dear STATA-Listers, 

I have a data set which uses different variable prefixes for different
waves of the panel. So the variable name of the first wave is: 
a_varname

To work with all the waves using the same commands I would like to
remove the different prefixes (a_ for the first wave, b_ for the
second and so on). To this end I used the "renpfix" command. However I
could not figure out how I could replace the prefix for "nothing",
i.e. I want to change

	a_varname  ===> varname

How can that be done? 

Thanks, 
Ben Kriechel
