Stata does not allow me to rename an invalid varname. How do a change the varnames? I use stata12.
The data set I have been using, have some  variables with invalid names such as (Áal˝˛012) or (ˆss02101). When I try to rename these variables I get the following message.

 rename ˆss02101 oss02101
ˆss02101 invalid name

Any suggestion to rename already invalid varnames?
