Hi everyone,
I'm having some trouble trying to figure out how to do batch renames.
To elaborate, suppose I have 10 variables: v1, v2....v10 and I want to
rename every second var (ie v2, v4, v6, v8 and v10) to cost_a,
cost_b....cost_e. Can anyone please help me figure this out? I've
tried looking into renvars, but can't seem to figure it out.
