I tried something on foreach, and I don't see why it doesn't work.

Eg:
. foreach j in 99 00 01 {
  2. di "`j'"
  3. }
99
00
01

. foreach j in 99 00 01 {
  2. su _y`j'
  3. }

    Variable |     Obs        Mean   Std. Dev.       Min        Max
-------------+-----------------------------------------------------
        _y99 |       0

    Variable |     Obs        Mean   Std. Dev.       Min        Max
-------------+-----------------------------------------------------
        _y00 |       0

    Variable |     Obs        Mean   Std. Dev.       Min        Max
-------------+-----------------------------------------------------
        _y01 |       0

(I have all _y99 _y00 _y01 as missing values)

I would like to use -forvalues- to run loops over the years 84-02. It 
works fine from 84-99 but in 2000 I get problems. I have tried to run 
the loop 00-02 separately to avoid the "2k flip". The thing is, however 
that –foreach- and forvalues- writes 00 as 0 and 01 as 1.

Any suggestions on this?
Hans
