Converting county code to name

I am trying to merge the IPUMS dataset with one that uses county names rather than codes. Is there a do-file or methodology for converting the codes (int values) into the names of the counties (strings)?

Depending on how broad an area you are analyzing (one state, a few states or the whole country), you might find this Census site useful: https://www.census.gov/geo/reference/...
