@Reeza: I think you meant that it adds a suffix to the variable name. Actually, it adds a delimiter (i.e., '_') and then the suffix (namely the requested statistic). I would vote for those defaulting to their current values, but overridden if one also uses the delimiter option (e.g., delimiter=none or delimiter=_) and/or prefix option (e.g., prefix)

 

As such, yes, I'd vote for it!

@art297 oops, yes, it adds a suffix and I want to be able to add it as a prefix instead! I don't see a way to edit idea's unfortunately Smiley Sad

Understand the desire. I think I have a macro somewhere that created a rename statement to create an appropriate rename statement for when all the variables had the same statistics listed. Since I almost never ask for statistics for variables with names over 15 characters autoname usually isn't a serious issue from length though.
