Dear Katie,

Please do the following:
1. Goto File -> Options -> Choose tab titled "Create Data File" and Select
the redio button "Automatic Field   Names"
2. Make your .QES file with appropriate labels Like

        Variable One is Auto ID: <AutoID>
                           Two is Text: <AAAAAAAAAAAAA>
                 And So on and on: ###.##

3. Once you are satisfied with the alignmen and all, mark the variable names
with braces within the labels, without changing anything in the resulting
alignment alignment like:

        {Var}iable One is Auto {ID}: <AutoID>
                           {T}wo is {T}ext: <AAAAAAAAAAAAA>
                 And {So on} and on: ###.##

4. Save the .QES file, go to "make data file" and follow through. The names
would be "varid", "tt" and "soon". Any further changes will not affect the
names so long as the text withing braces stays the same.

Good Luck
