If there was a large number of variables one could also use an: if
inlist("`var'","a","b"...up to 10 varnames) and this could be repeated
with an or.

I am assuming one would use this to cycle through all categorical
variables excluding the measure variables or vice versa.

There's likely a better way, but I often do this:

foreach each var of varlist _all {
        if "`var'" == "a" continue
        if "`var'" == "b" continue

        <whatever>
}

Hi,

using the foreach command I would like to exclude certain variables,
e.g:
"foreach var of varlist _all [/excluding a, b, c/]".

Is that possible and if so how?

Thanks,

Thomas
