woops, I forgot about that requirement. You can also put the global into a local before using it (which may be helpful in other situations):

local outyear ${out_`year'}
foreach x in `outyear' {

Braces are also necessary when the global name contains a local macro...

. local loc a

. global ga hello world

. di "$ga"
hello world

. di "$g`loc'"

. di "${g`loc'}"
hello world

This was the case in the posted query... as I said in my previous response (which doesn't seem to have arrived yet more than an hour since I sent it) the -foreach x of global g- construct solves the problem.
