Hi _ In Stata 13 (and also in Stata 12), it appears that the abbreviation with a dash "-" does not work with -describe using-

e.g.

use temp,clear

. des y1-y2 using ajit_112213
variable - not found in file ajit_112213.dta
r(111);

. des y1 y2 using ajit_112213

              storage   display    value
variable name   type    format     label      variable label
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
y1              float   %8.0g                 seatedegress
y2              float   %8.0g                 pegboard

But the asterisk does work:

. des y* using ajit_112213 

              storage   display    value
variable name   type    format     label      variable label
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
y1              float   %8.0g                 seatedegress
y2              float   %8.0g                 pegboard

Am I missing something?

Thanks, 

Al Feiveson
