folder.
I can define an array:

local array "file1 file2 file3 .... fileN"
and loop through the elements.

But I do not want to type all the names (if there are
50 or so; it's possible to make typos, and it's
difficult to audit).

Is it possible to define the array without listing the
elements if the number of elements is known? Is it
possible if the number is not known?

I'm currently using STATA 7, but might be upgrading to
STATA 8.

Thank you!
Karina
