A client wanted to know if it was possible in Surveybe to automatically concatenate the numeric values associated with labels with the label descriptions.

When writing new .do files it's useful to be able to see the value labels there immediately as you browse/tab the data rather than having to click on cells in the data editor or use "tab ...., nolabel", etc. to see which values correspond to which labels.

It's quite time consuming to manually edit the descriptions, and Surveybe can't do this for you automatically, but there is a way to achieve this.

Use a 'numlabel, add' command at the beginning of a Stata session, then the numeric codes will appear in all tabs and data browsing from there on.
