You can define drugsN by:

gen drugsN = 1 if drugsN01 == 1
replace drugsN = 2 if drugsN02 == 1    
...
replace drugsN = 7 if drugsN02 == 7    

and then, you have to use the label define command like this:

label define <labelname> 1 "drugsN01" 2 "drugsN02" ... 7 "drugsN07", add
label values drugsN labelname

Dear Statalist,  

I have panel data for the years 2005-2010 and variables called drugsN,
drugsN01, drugsN02,..., drugsN07. As drugsN01 to drugsN07 are subgroups of
drugsN, I would like to have these subgroups as labels for the drugsN
variable. 
Unfortunately I don?t know how to that. Anyone a glue about it?   

Thx in advance!
