thanks a lot for the prompt replies. however, i think i didn't explain my
problem accurately.

i'll start from the end result perhaps it makes more sense this way. please
bear with me.
in the end, i would like to have a matrix (to be exported in excel) with

varname    coeff1    stderr1    coeff2    stderr2....

the variables under varname come from the varlist `outcomes' i described in
the previous email (i.e. local outcomes " an_abbreviated_varlist ").
to obtain the above mentioned matrix, i'm thinking of implementing the
following loop:

foreach var of varlist `outcomes' {
    reg `var' x1 x2...
    now somehow generate a scalar indexed by the position of `var' in
varlist (i.e. scalar1         for first variable, scalar2 for second), equal
to the coefficient of x1
    do the same for the stderror of x1, coeff of x2, and so on

after the loop is done take these scalars and put them into the above
mentioned matrix. the part i don't know how to do is to generate those

thanks for bearing with me,

Radu Ban
