Here is another, clunkier, option: /* Begin */ clear set obs 1000 g abc_56epi=0 g def_56epi=0 g ghi_56epi=0 ds *_56epi local varlist=r(varlist) foreach x of local varlist { local y_`x' = regexr("`x'", "_56epi", "_45epi") rename `x' `y_`x'' } /* End */ T On Fri, May 1, 2009 at 11:57 AM, sdm1 <[email protected]> wrote:I have 150 variables all with the same suffix.
