Look at the -order- command.

. sysuse auto, clear
(1978 Automobile Data)

. gen newvar = 42

. ds
make          rep78         weight        displacement  newvar
price         headroom      length        gear_ratio
mpg           trunk         turn          foreign

. order make-trunk newvar

. ds
make          rep78         newvar        turn          foreign
price         headroom      weight        displacement
mpg           trunk         length        gear_ratio
