Not clear exactly what you want, but see -help decode- and -help
encode- for turning labels into values or vice versa.  If you mean to
make variables cropid101, cropid102, etc. then see -help reshape-. 
You question would be more scrutable if you gave the before and after
versions of what you want to do.
