Exporting label information for >2000 variables

Postby consult01 » Wed Jul 25, 2012 5:48 pm

Hi all,

I have a large dataset including >2000 variables.

My client has requested the dataset in Excel, which I have managed to do.

However, all these variables contain specific labels including an explanation of what the variable stands for. Without this explanation, my client has no use of the dataset.

When I export the dataset, this label information does not come along.

Does anyone know how to export the label information of such a database including so many variables?

Much appreciated!

File > Display Data File Information > Working File

Print that out and send over with the Excel worksheet.
