Have a look at the help for -limits-. From memory I think that row and column names can not be as long as value labels, but check the limits for your version and flavour of Stata.

Hi everyone,

I have made a matrix to collect the results of some unit root tests.
I would like the matrix row names to be the value labels of the variables.
Unfortunately they get contracted with the ~.

Is there a way around this?

For example

sysuse auto, clear
matrix define A = J(3, 1, 0)
foreach v of var make price rep78 {
   local lbl`v': variable label `v'
matrix rownames A = "`lblmake'" "`lblprice'" "`lblrep78'"
matrix list A

And the names of the "make" and "rep78" rows are contracted with a ~

I have looked around on the Statalist archives and also on Google but
haven't turned up anything.

Kind regards,
