It might be easier to feed -levinlin- a list of lag numbers before you place
them in a matrix, but here is one way.

1. Convert the matrix to a series of variables.

2. Place the values of the variables into local macro

3. Use the local macro in -levinlin-

For example:

webuse grunfeld,clear
matrix A = 1,2,3,4,5,1,2,3,4,5
matrix list A
svmat A

foreach var of varlist A* {
local lags "`lags' `=`var'[1]'"
drop A*
disp "`lags'"
levinlin invest , lag(`lags')
