Dear Statalisters:

I use the following loop to perform 9 t tests:

foreach varname of varlist competence form_gest exp_fi {

foreach groupvar of varlist interne independant comite_audit {

ttest `varname', by(`groupvar'),  if directoire==0 & president_ca==0

}
}

I have no problem with the loop and I get the results I was looking for. 

However, in the output, the variable names are not mentioned. Given that I have 9 outputs, it's rather combersume to determine which test is based on which variables.

When I do a single t test for one varname and one groupvar, the same problem exists (no variable names in the ouput) but the command line tells me which variables are involved.

Do you know if there is a way to solve my problem?

Best regards

Hervé Stolowy
