This may be of help.  I used the sort because I had date variables that I
wanted in order.  Your mileage may vary.

sort varnames
quietly by varnames: gen varname = cond(_N==1,0,_n)

Could anyone advice how to generate variable name with a incremental 
counter in it.
What I intend to do is:
local i=0
gen var'i'=a-b (suggestion required)
