Thank you very much Dimitriy!

Your suggestion was very helpful.  I ran my original code
but modified it as per your suggestion regarding "\`".

Using my earlier example, here's how I re-ran my code:

foreach X in x y z {
      reg a `X'
      outreg a `X' using "D:\/`X'.txt", replace
}

This was really great!
