thanks. i was wondering (and trying) whether something like the following is
possible with an ado:
pforeach v1 of var x1-x3 \ v2 of var y1-y3 \ i in 1 2 3: g z`i' = `v1'*`v2'
now i know that the only way to do this is:
pforeach v1 of var x1-x3 \ v2 of var y1-y3 \ i in 1 2 3: g z\`i' = \`v1'*\`v2'
thanks again to all who responded, Ed.
