I think you get the delimiters wrong, i.e. they are missing in some of the lines. You have to either - delimit cr - an remove all of them or add them to the end of each line.

Also, the first -foreach- should probably be a -forvalues-.

So, maybe something along these lines (untested):

#delimit cr
su group, meanonly
forvalues i of num 1/`r(max)' {
levelsof bvd_id_number, local(levels)
foreach l of local levels {
local k=1
while `k'<=`year_count' if bvd_id_number==`l' {
replace gamo=gamo + (tax[_`l']-tax[_`k'])*ratio_assets[_`k']
local k=`k'+1
}
}
}

Hi All,

I have the do file below and apart from other problems tah one I have is that Stata says that "option foreach is not allowed". Any suggestions? Can you identify other problems with the code?

#delimit;
su group, meanonly
foreach i of num 1/`r(max)' {;
levelsof bvd_id_number, local(levels)
foreach l of local levels {;
local k=1
while `k'<=`year_count' if bvd_id_number==`l' {;
replace gamo=gamo + (tax[_`l']-tax[_`k'])*ratio_assets[_`k']
local k=`k'+1
};
};	
};

Many thanks.

Regards,
Socrates
