Setting output for SPSS Variable names, Labels, or both

SPSS variable

Typically I want to have the SPSS variable labels show up in my SPSS output however there are times when having the variable names is beneficial (especially for writing more syntax).  Other times (rare) I actually want to have both.  The syntax for changing is straight forward

 
*****Show Names*********.
SET OVars Labels ONumbers Labels TVars Names TNumbers Labels.

*****Show Labels********.
SET OVars Labels ONumbers Labels TVars Labels TNumbers Labels.

*****Show Both**********.
SET OVars Labels ONumbers Labels TVars Both TNumbers Labels.
