Dear StataListers,


since I have already disturbed a colleague who could not help me out I am going to confront you with my small problem:
I want Stata to run a loop from 1 to the maximum of observations in my dataset.
I tried:

gen obs2 = _n

sum obs2

scalar m = r(max)

forvalues i=1/`m'{
....
}


Which did not work. There is probably a very easy way to do that but I just do not know it.

Any suggestions are greatly appreciated.


Yours,

Justina Fischer
