First, you need to watch lines like . forv i=1/9 { graph x`i' y, by(z) saving(gx`i',replace) } -- adding the "}" omitted by accident -- in which Stata is presented with everything on one line. This is not _guaranteed_ to work. If the whole is relatively simple, it will; but not otherwise. However, that's circular, as "relatively simple" is defined by it working. The syntax you should follow with -forvalues- or -foreach- puts each command within the loop on a separate line, namely . forv i=1/9 { . graph x`i' y, by(z) saving(gx`i',replace) . } In practice, you can often put the last brace } on the same line as the command before it, as in . graph x`i' y, by(z) saving(gx`i',replace) } I don't think I've seen Stata complain at that, although that's Stata's indulgence rather than recommended syntax. Second, and more positively, I often loop something like this forval i = 1/9 graph <whatever> if something == `i', t1(`i') saving(g`i') more } The two extra details are the -more-, which ensures a slide show not a movie, and a title which shows which group you are seeing.
