Your example syntax doesn't meet the pattern. 

There is no file with filename -tab_chi- (i.e. tab_chi.) 
on SSC. 

. cd c:\ado\plus\c 

. foreach f in chitest.ado chitest.hlp chitesti.ado chitesti.hlp { 
	ssc copy `f' 
} 

or

. foreach f in chitest chitesti { 
	ssc copy `f'.ado
	ssc copy `f.hlp  
}
