As ever many thanks for your assistance. For each value of code there are 7 values of id and I was attempting to produce an output listing the integral, id and associated code.

What's more, there will be no space between the two items printed. It sounds as if you want something more like forval i = 1/294 { qui integ volume rtime if id == `i' display code[`i'] " " r(integral) } where I have omitted generating an optional variable only to -drop- it a moment later. If you shut up -integ-, you can just collate the results within a log. There are other ways to do it, e.g. -file-.
