I have the written the following code to run a sample command on each
one of my variables:

local i=1
foreach x in var1-var91 {
	while `i' <=10 {
		use c:\ado\personal\easy.dta
		sample 5, count
		save mewsample`i', replace
		local i= `i' +1
}
}

However, I have a problem because there are missing values in each list,
and my random samples often return a missing value as one of their 5
terms. What's the best way to exclude missing values from the sample
generation?
