Dear Statalisters,
I am trying to loop over 1870 cases using the -foreach- function, e.g.:

. foreach n of numlist 1/1870{ display(`n')}
invalid numlist has too many elements
r(123);

Does anybody know what's the maximum number of elements of a -numlist-?
Thanks beforehand for the attention,
Euler P.G de Mello

Ps.:
I have already managed to circunvene this situation by using 
something like:

local step=0
foreach n of numlist 1/2 {
        foreach m of numlist 1/5 {
                display(5*`step'+`m')
                }
        local step=`step'+1
  
}
