Dear listers,
I received an excel dataset with col1 identifiying productnumber, while col2 has the text variable for the productnumber.
Col1 col2
1      Table
2       Chair


Now what I´d like to do is to automatically generate a label for col1 containing col2.

local j=0
global h=""

levelsof col2,local (u)
foreach var in `u'{
local j=`j'+1

global h $h `j'"`""`var'""'"
di "$h"


lab define col1 $h
lab val col1 col1

The di "$4" displays everything as planned, except for the sorting that has been carried out by levelsof. Is there  workaround ? As of now the values in the columns dont match.
