Hi,
Some helpful pointers
- Please mention OS and version of Stata

- Include the exact command you typed and error you got (I say this because I notice that in the code below you are using "-inflie-" and I think what you actually typed -infile-. You also say that the code bails out in the -insheet- loop but I cant see that loop in the code you show below).

Finally, your problem might be an issue with the slashes, try changing the last back slash to a forward slash

"C:\Program Files\ .......\Dict/file.dct"
^

Hi!

I have a dictionary in a set of folders and data in another folder.

global dict "C:\Program Files\ .......\Dict"
global data "C:\Program Files\ .......\Data"
gloabl filename "file2 ... file 200"

Now I need to place a call like

inflie "C:\Program Files\ .......\Dict\file.dct", using("C:\Program Files\ .......\Data\file1.raw"
tempfile data
save "`data'"

for file in `filename'{

inflie "'$dict`$file.dct' ", using(" $data'$var' ")
append "`data'"

}


the code keeps bailing at the for loop insheet saying it cant chaneg directories. is there a neat way of specifying directory changes with two strings ?

any help would be really great. i have been banging my head on this for a bit.

alex
