Hi,
 
I have an Excel spreadsheet (someone else created it) with three worksheets.  Two have data sets that I have transferred by cutting and pasting into Stata and merging.  The third has four columns:  
 
Column 1:  variable name data set 1
Column 2: variable label data set 1
Column 3: variable name data set 2
Column 4: variable label data set 2
 
Is there a way to link the variable names and labels (by cutting and pasting?) into the merged data set without having to retype each of the labels?  I presume that you can't do all of this at once, if at all, but column by column would be great.
 
Many thanks,
 
Ric Uslaner
