Your question is becoming less clear to me. For the benefit of those of
us who don't ever use SPSS, please spell out precisely what you are
missing: some kind of editor that consists only of fields for metadata
such as names and variable labels?

Thanks Maarten and Nick for the responses so far, but I know of label,
rename, and renvars (all great).  But I want to avoid having to rename
and relabel 300 variables in successive commands.  What I am looking for
is an editor/spreadsheet, as in SPSS's variable view.  That would save a
ton of time.  As I see it now, using the data editor is far less
cumbersome than 300 rename/label statements and renvars doesn't make the
whole process that much easier.
Any help would be appreciated.  And if not, why can't Stata do this as
SPSS has?
