Thanks for the immediate the answer! It really helped me. Anyway, would it be possible to remove the variables labels? Sorry for the wrong subject in the first message.

In the Options dialog box (Edit - Options) at the General page of options, choose "Show variable names" instead of "labels" in the upper right option buttons. You can keep the labels for the purpose of producing output. This option only affects how variable lists are shown in dialog boxes.
