Hello all,

I'm running a program through bunch of files(
file1.dta, file2.dta, etc) I am opening them and would
like to save them as replace. It opens fine, but
saving doesn't work.

My code:

forv i=1(1)48 {
use "C:\WINNT\Desktop\file`i'.dta"

* body of the program *

save "C:\WINNT\Desktop\file`i'.dta", replace
clear
}

When it saves, it only saves file.data, not file1.dta,
etc. Why?
Thank you very much in advance, 

Tj
