LOOKFORIT: Stata module to search variable names and labels for some string or strings
lookforit is an enhancement of the base Stata command lookfor. It searches all variable names and variable labels just as lookfor does. Like lookfor lookforit can search for multiple strings but can only do a simple search, i.e. no &'s, |'s, or enclosing strings in quotes. The ways that lookforit differs from lookfor are as follows: 1) lookforit does a case sensitive search if the user types any upper case characters, otherwise, it performs a case insensitive search, 2) lookforit lists variables alphabetically, 3) the listed variable names are clickable links to the data editor that opens Stata's data editor to that variable column.
