How to rename variables names automatically?

88videos
Hello,

After some analysis I have 500 variables.

It looks like this. Data for example.

INPUT PROGRAM.
loop #i=1 to 500.
compute id=#i.
end case.
 end loop.
end file.
END INPUT PROGRAM.
execute.
dataset name example.

dataset activate example.

do repeat i=@1 to @500.
compute i=RV.UNIFORM(1, 10).
end repeat.
EXECUTE.


I want to rename their names., but in command 'rename variables' i can't use 'to'.
This command will cause error
Rename variables
@1 to v500=var1 to var500.

I don 't want to use CTRL+F to find every '@' and replace it with 'var'.

 How to do this?

Thank you in advance.

This will work.  Added parentheses and corrected left-hand-side typo.

Rename variables
(@1 to @500=var1 to var500).

Rick Oliver

The command syntax reference show the parentheses as required elements in the syntax chart but the overview does not indicate the parentheses are required. A little experimentation suggests that the parentheses are required if you are specifying a list of variables to rename, with or without using TO.

Why not just use var1 to var500 in the DO REPEAT rather than @1 to @500?
You say "After some analysis I have 500 variables.".
Is there something relevant about the post state of affairs "after some analysis" which you are omitting?

Just an afterthought: you can always highlight the name column and use ctrl+H to replace all the @ in one pass.
