st: insheeting data with numeric variable names
I have a data set of quarterly figures in wide format, where the
variable names range between 1996q1 and 2029q4
The Stata command
insheet using data.txt, names double
will replace these variable names with q1 through q4 for the first four,
then v10 through v141 for the subsequent ones.
It looks like Stata, by default, assumes that variable names cannot be
numeric, or cannot begin with numbers.
Is there an easy way around this problem?
