-forvalues- only allows a few specific types of numlists -- try using
-foreach-

foreach n of numlist 100(100)1000 1000(500)5000 5000(1000)10000 
10000(5000)50000 50000(10000)100000 {

is legal.

see -whelp foreach- and -whelp fovalues-

I have a longer -numlist- to process with -forvalues-. I 
can't see why the following does not work:

forval n = 100(100)1000 1000(500)5000 5000(1000)10000 
10000(5000)50000 50000(10000)100000 {
invalid syntax
r(198);

-whelp limits- says the limit of a -numlist- is 1,600. I 
have 36 above. And the actual list in my example is even 
longer than that.

Thanks in advance.

Rgds,
Daniel
