AUTORENAME: rename variables using a row of data


Updates:

  • July 8, 2009
    • Added nodestring options

Install:

Type which autorename at the Stata prompt to determine which version you have installed. To install the most recent version of autorename, copy/paste the following line of code:

net install autorename, from("https://raw.githubusercontent.com/reifjulian/autorename/master") replace

To install the version that was uploaded to SSC, copy/paste the following line of code:

ssc install autorename, replace

These two versions are typically synced, but occasionally the SSC version may be slightly out of date.

Description:

autorename is a Stata command that renames variables using a row of data. This can be useful when reading oddly formatted datasets.

For more details, see the Stata help file included in this package.
