Hi all, 

I am trying to use the foreach command to "outsheet" five statafiles
into 5 excel files but don't know how to create the two lists. 

So far I have this...

#delimit; 
foreach file in oilgs.dta  data2.dta data3.dta {;
outsheet using bra1.xls bra2.xls bra3.xls , replace;
};
 

But it doesn't recognize the list of  xls files 


Thank you
