Hi,

I want to loop a tabstat command to compute median income for a number of years using 
‘forvalues’ in a do-file. According to the help function the following should be allowed:

forvalues i = 1 2 5/10 {
	tabstat Y`i’, by(country) s(p50)
}

However, I get the following error message: 

invalid syntax 
r(198);

By the way, I get the same error message using other commands such as sum Y`i’.

forvalues i = 1/10 { ...  works perfectly.


Can anyone help?
