Greetings Stata list members,
I have been unsuccessful searching the archives for commands (which will not require programming) that will do the following:

1. Edit words within a string variable that contains several words
2. Display this string variable with each word abbreviated to one or two letters.

Can anyone suggest a method?

Best wishes,
