I have a data set that someone else created.  The data are survey data and the variable names are such as q31a, etc.  The labels make no sense either.  I want to rename the variables and the labels.  In the past, I have had to click on one variable at a a time and rename it and the label in the data editor.  But this is awkward and time consuming.  I could convert the data to SPSS and use the variable view to change the names and labels rather easily but this would limit the variable names to 8 characters.  I know of John Gleason's labedit, but this does not allow changing variable names and I cannot change the size from a tiny box to a larger box.

I have searched for such a variable editor using findit and came up with nothing.  Am I missing something--and, if not, is this something that Stata can work on?
