this is in continuation of my problem of generating number series.

can i run a a loop like the following in STATA:

for city = 1 to 2
for house = 1 to 40
for sample = 1 to 5
gen code = string(city)+string(house)+string(sample)
next sample
next house
next city

i know this is not STATA syntax but i am trying to express the problem intuitively.
