How about replacing "gen j = i-1" to "local j = `i' - 1"?

Thank you to everyone for your replies. Now I need to do something
tricky with my looping: I need to refer to b1_0X and b1_0(X-1) in the
same command. Something like this:

forvalues i = 1(1)9 {
gen j = i - 1
gen newvar = b1_0`i' - b1_0`j'
}

Unfortunately, Stata doesn't recognize i as a variable. Any suggestions?
Thanks so much to everyone for your help.

Best,
Kenley
